The fact they use that name makes me wonder if the Helfricks are involved they we're know as Kerris & Helfrick back in the 60's and 70's and were one of the largest strip miners around. But anyway look forward to the burn report. I do and don't miss UAE the ash content was a dream in the stokers but was never to crazy about its low volatility in a hand fired stove with marginal draft we run in a workshop. The majority of the last 20+ years burning coal has been white ash. I also hated the amount of dust and fines the Harmony coal contained they never really had a breaker/washery. So the coal sold there isn't prepped there most likely,, I've heard the name Mallard associated with them too that could be coming out of the old Savitski breaker site in Atlas Pa. a few miles away there was a lot of local politics involved with getting it all established local residents didn't want it.
Lewis, The breaker in Atlas is not associated with the new Harmony. That is owned by Molesevich I believe. The coal at Harmony is run through the breaker at Mallard Contracting going towards Wilburton and hauled over to Harmony.
