January 2013 I was running low and needed a load, only to find they were out of pea, they told me they can't process coal when it's really cold. I ASSUMED they used water, to clean ,float,or whatever, then the coal would freeze. But I don't understand the process, so what do I know Might someone enlighten us of the process.jpen1 wrote: it isn't going to be very good if it isn't floated through a menzies cone.

The harmony mine had a few different veins of coal in it. The last two were lykens veins with the last I think being the lykens 2 vein. They were in that vein for about the last 4 years. From what I have been told from the mining engineer that helped UAE with their permits is that the coal being sold there now is [u]not[u] from the same source as before as the permits are not in place to mine the old site. Also the new coal is strip mined and they were going to use UAE's breaker to process the coal however UAE didn't have a cone seperator to my knowledge so if it is stripped coal it isn't going to be very good if it isn't floated through a menzies cone.

The coal is currently cleaned by the heavy media process. Harmony breaker utilized the same process. Ash content varies from 8-10. Most of the coal comes from the Mammath Vein. They have rice, buckwheat, pea, and nut. They told me they will also be selling stove coal in the future.
