If i may make a suggestion, i would differ from my design just a touch. Gray siding may be more dust friendly than my white... :oops:

good clean coal should be between 52 and 56 lbs./cubic foot,depending on which vein and field it comes from.Southern field coal is on high side and northern field should be on lower side.When it is much heavier than that,it is because is has a higher slate and impurity content.You can almost judge ash content based on prepared coal weight per cu.ft.....FYI also,pure refuse,slate and rock,averages about 78lbs. per cu.ft.
