This paper summarizes the washability study conducted under the Coal Quality project.  The aim of the study was to investigate and interpret washability characteristics of British Columbia coals, in order to provide a geological basis of washability and to gain practical information which will be useful in the processing and utilization of these coals.  Washability characteristics of many coal seams from various British Columbia coal fields were examined.
