The paper presents results of virgin rock temperature measurements in 22 production districts of 16 coal mines in Raniganj coalfield for computation of geothermic gradient. The gradient has also been measured by taking temperature measurements in 9 surface boreholes. It has been observed that minimum subsurface isothermal at the depth of 20 m below surface has a temperature of 28.25°C after which the virgin rock temperature rises at a constant rate of 2.25°C/100 m.
