The coal looks very clean and everyone there was very friendly. I got there at 8:15 Saturday morning and after I got my 3 ton loaded there wasn't that much nut coal left? They told me they are having trouble keeping the nut coal on the lot! It is a little too soon to tell but this coal seems to be burning very well in the Harman insert. I have tried Blaschak, Tuscarora, Jeddo-Highland, South Tamaqua, West Penn, American Premium, and LC&N coal. I always come back to South Tamaqua as I have never received bad coal from them, just a little pricey. Does anyone have any info on Harmony mining operations? Not a whole lot to see when I picked my coal up? Where do they mine it at, where is there breaker? Thank you everyone, happy burning!
The Mine is behind the scale trailer /coal bins up on mountain if you would drive pass the first left at end of bin to get on
scale and go to the second left you would go up to top of mountain where the mine entrance is as well as the crusher and sizing screens are there is no breaker only crusher and sizing screens Most of the coal they sell is mine run /raw coal to other companies the process coal is a very small part of their business more of a service then a main business.
The raw coal comes out and they crush and size a small % of it most is trucked out raw to other mining co. /breakers
They also have big contract with Canadian firms that buy large amounts of process coal hence short supply on some sizes.
FYI most of the coal at South Tamaqua, & American Premium comes from LC&N the difference is how it is process Thur each place also Tuscarora coal Co. /breaker is now also owned by the same owner as S.T.
