The Southern Field is the largest of the four anthracite fields consisting of several smaller, interconnected coal basins. The main axis of the field extends for approximately 55 miles in a southwesterly direction beginning near Jim Thorpe (Mauch Chunk), and ending into two tails in Dauphin County. The major towns contained in this field include Lansford, Coaldale, Tamaqua, Pottsville, Minersville, Tower City and Lykens.
