Isn't Mammoth just a large coal vein that many of the mining companies are tapping, or is there also a mining company called Mammoth?

Is the Mammoth vein still the largest anthracite vein of them all?

It's actually Mammoth Materials outside of Primrose. They sell coal, mulch, stone and other landscape materials.

Larry,

There is a book titled, "The Anthracite Coal Industry", by Peter Roberts and W.G.Sumner published in 1901 that has the information you are looking for. It's details the different coal areas, coal depths, coal quality, plus a lot more. It's part of the Google scanned book project. Here an online link:

I downloaded a pdf of it, but don't remember where I found the download link.

Ah, understood! The easiest thing to do would be ask them where they are getting it from. Then check back here with the information and others will be able to assist you with their opinions.
