The following extract was found at

The geological coal deposits in the area of the Bug river and the Lublin region were discovered as a result of long-term research. First mentions of carbon occurance date from 1881, and were published in "Pamietnik Fizjograficzny" by W. Choroszewski. Later, Prof. J. Samsonowicz in 1932 postulates the existence of carbon deposits on the basis of geological examinations carried out in 1922-1929 in the area of western Wolyn and southern Polesie.
