Hello Jack, I don't think there are any Bituminous dealers in Michigan, Dennis farms just west of Toledo has Bituminous coal, I think it is about $150/ton, he has Anthracite for around $220/ton.

What type of stove are you planning on burning Bituminous in?? and where in Michigan are you located??

I may have a line on about half a ton of Bituminous, and may have some Anthracite for sale.

Let me know what stove or coal burning appliance you are burning it in.

i would also reccomend stopping by as many coal fired powerplants as you can in your area, surprisingly they will likely deal with you and send a guy with the small loader out to fill your truck or trailer w/ a couple tons and charge you cost or only a few bucks more for their 10 min of time; you will usually pay around $30-60/ton, however you will have to find an older smaller stoker plant if you want little to no fines in your coal. btw, be sure to ask for the plant operator etc.
