My husband and I have been going back and forth on coal terms. Is there anything larger than a vein of coal? I know seams are smaller, but as for anything larger, I thought the vein was the largest run of coal. Please help us solve this!! thanks!!!! :?:

Anything bigger than a vein of anthracite would be a gold mine right now! :P

a few feet, for anthricite perhaps, but prb coal like that at the black thunder mine in wyoming @ 300+ ft. thick and hundereds of square miles, i'd say thats bigger. :P

coal seam/bed are used pretty interchangably in coal industry speech, vein is rarely heard.

You leave that 300' thick Wyoming Bituminous alone for another 150 million years and you'll have 30' of Anthracite! :)
