The thickest seams outcrop at Stellarton where most of the mining has been. But their thickness and complicated geology have made them challenging to safely mine. In these veins of gassy coal overlain with a soft shale and sandstone roof, methane was so pervasive that it would hiss or burst out from cracks in the face.
