When coal combusts it leaves ash as the inorganic residue composed of oxides of the mineral content in the coal. Coal ash chemistry has a significant influence on coke strength after reaction, is an important measure of coking coal quality, and is used to predict slagging and fouling potential in furnaces or kilns. This database compiles 484 ash ash chemistry analyses of British Columbia Rocky Mountain bituminous coals from public sources. A description of the database is found in British Columbia Geological Survey GeoFile 2017-10:
