Boghead coal definition is - a cannel coal in which algal remains predominate and which is valuable as a source of paraffin oils and gas. They are usually more abundant in the Appalachian coals than any other U.S. coals except cannel and boghead types where they dominate.

At a reflectance of most of the liptinite macerals disappear from coal. Cannel and Boghead coals are petrographically distinguished from humic coals by both their maceral composition and texture. Cannel coal or candle coal is a type of bituminous coal, also classified as terrestrial type oil shale.

Due to its physical morphology and low mineral content cannel coal is considered to be coal but by its texture and composition of the organic matter it is considered to be oil shale.

It usually occurs as lenticular masses, often associated with deposits of Permian coals. Torbanite is classified as lacustrine type oil shale. Torbanite is named after Torbane Hill near Bathgate in Scotland, its main location of occurrence. Soft coal comes nearer to amorphous carbon.

Boghead appears to be of an entirely different character (Fig. 5, magnified X). It is easily reduced to a thin transparent plate, and shows itself to be formed of a multitude of very small lenses, differing in size and shape, and much more transparent than the bands that separate them.

Some of the coals from the boreholes were alternatively referred to as boghead coal (Helland, ) and cannel coal (Friis, ), due to the morphological and chemical similarity with these coal types, and in spite of the high ash content.

The high ash. Boghead originated in the early 19th century around the old Blackwood Estate. Blackwood estate provided farming work for local families and the original inhabitants of the village used to work there.
