Hello and good evening fellow board members.

I bought a ton of stove coal yesterday for $265.00 picked up at my fuel dealer.

The bagged price for 100 pounds of stove coal is considerably higher.

I was going to by two tons but I did not have the side extensions on the trailer
and it would have overflowed otherwise so I will start filling the pails when it
gets a bit cooler.

I ended up with 2,160 pounds and I paid nineteen and change for the extra 160 pounds.

The good thing is it did not have a lot of water in it as the piles are uncovered.

If you can get coal from a breaker you are better off. I understand that coal in Mt. Carmel (Harmony Mine) is $170 per ton. At the price you were quoted they are more than doubling the retail breaker price....a lot for hauling and dumping it seems. Bag coal is convenient but expensive.

If it's $170 at thr breaker they are probably paying in the $40 or $50/ton range to have it hauled that far. Then you have Ground space, loader, scale, tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars tied up in stock, breakage, time..... It's more than just having it hauled there and dumping it.

Not everyone has stove coal or bigger because modern cleaning technology became using a cyclone instead of a drum to separate the coal from the rock,it might cost more because it is,as a result,lower in supply.Gale Mining Co. Has a drum and a cyclone and sells its stove coal for no extra cost,now $170 per ton. Excellent quality and they even make bigger coal than stove,which is egg coal, 3 1/4" x 2 7/16. 570 668 5410
