I've been getting Sherman Coal for the past 8 years and have never had a bad load yet. I have a dump trailer and haul about 3 1/2 ton. When I bought in May of this year it was 160.00 a ton. Go 81 north and get off at the Hegins exit. Right at the stop and it's about 3/4 of a mile on the right. They have a 4'by8' sign with their name on it. It looks like your driving into the woods.

The Coal I'm burning comes from the South Tamaqua Coal Pocket, and though I'm not an expert, it's been burning well for me for over a month now. :) Two months, actually, but I don't count October because there was a steep learning curve during that time.

UAE in Mt. Carmel Pa. seems to have the best most consistent coal. Currently at $165 a ton if you pick up. Nut goes very FAST. If you need nut suggest you call first.

Had 4 tons delivered from South Tamaqua in June, burning as hot as last year's Superior with far less ash. Not sure about current pricing though.
