2011-2012 Anthracite Prices

PostBy: DennisH On: Wed Jul 20, 2011 4:58 pm

Does anybody in PA coal country have any idea how much coal prices are going up for the upcoming winter? I heat my home in the upper peninsula of Michigan with wood and coal, and last season my supplier was able to provide me Blashak nut coal for $375 per 60 bag skid. May seem pricey to you in coal country, but factoring in transportation costs it's still 40 percent cheaper than propane where I live. Just trying to get a feel what the increases might be.
Thank you in advance.

Guess this is new topic for this year. Older ones can be found here. I added a poll.

The poll for the 2010-2011 season can be found here: What's the price for 1 ton of coal in your area? 2010-11
The poll for the 2009-2010 season can be found here: What's the price for 1 ton of coal in your area? 2009-10
The poll for the 2008-2009 season can be found here: What's the price for 1 ton of coal in your area? 2008-09
The poll for the 2007-2008 season can be found here: What's the price for 1 ton of coal in your area? 2007-08

Unfortunatly I only have a small materials yard in Dushore that supplies area with coal. They have Blaschak now for about 230 a ton delivered. Guess its time to put the plywood on the utility cart.

My delivery guy told me $10-15 increase this week. I am trying to pack in a double load.

He heard that the Chinese are buying up everything they can and have built a railroad in PA to transport to a cross country connection to ship it to China. Anyone else hear about this?

If it's true, the Chinese are getting nervous about the dollar. Anthracite shipped half way around the globe isn't cheaper than oil or Australian coal.

This should explain it:

http://thetimes-tribune.com/news/busine ... d-1.928502

Railroad already exists. China is buying coal for metalurgical purposes. Demand is currently high. More to do about supply and demand, not dollar. Only positive note, it will help balance the trade deficit. Anthracite burners will pay more. Stock up now. Note that the article is a year old.

China is buying mineral resources all over the world, coal, iron ore, crude oil, etc. It's to meet domestic demand. They are no longer self sufficient in coal. They must buy. One of the countries they would like to buy from is Mongolia which is rich with coal and it's close by. But there is a problem, no railway to China and poor roads. But the Mongolian's are leery of China. So the railroad they are building to export their coal is going to Russia not China.

Read more about it in a recent Washington Post article. "China, rich with coal, seeks more next door in Mongolia to meet its energy needs" By Andrew Higgins, Published: July 16, 2011.

Thanks for the good links. It is what I expected. One article characterized anthracite going through the roof. I didn't experience that myself. It is up for me from $210 to 238 per ton delivered. Just put it in two days ago. The price always includes the use of an elevator (conveyor) to put it up. Considering my mother contracted for oil at $3200 (heat loss 78kbtu/h) and I will use about $1300 (heat loss 56KBTU/H) in coal, I am happy so far with the price increase. Only time will tell what happens to it.

Lots of natural gas drilling in our area but no pipelines to the villages and hamlets yet. If the chinese get too porky, that may be the cheapest way to heat (excluding bit - yuck!)

Same here, my suppliers went up about $5-10/ton. I think around $230-240/ton (Bulk).

Bought my coal today from a different supplier.....5 pallets (6.25 ton) of Blaschak rice. $287.50 per ton was the quoted price. That's one hell of a price for these parts! :D This will be the first winter I burn strictly Blaschak. We'll have to see if I burn less than before. Friends of mine swear by it......claim they burn less than with Kimmels or Reading. Time will tell!
