The nice thing about white ash coal is no clinkers,even if I leave the ash door open.
I sure do miss the deep mined coal from Superior.That stuff was like nitro-methanol in my furnace.
Schuylkill coal Processing will have good red ash coal . Their located off of Route 901 exit 116 I-81 6 miles from UAE and
about the same from Sherman .
Superior still has red ash coal
Summit Anthracite has both white and red ash coal
Calvin V. lenig will have Red ash coal
