Geez Larry you sure are asking for a lot of information.
My family always burned from Jeddo when I was a younger man. A few years ago when I bought my house and added my coal stove I first started with Hudson Coal, however I was not happy with the product. I felt it was burning way too fast. So I then switched to Jeddo Coal. After looking into a local supplier, he advertised on his website that he gets his coal from Hazleton and claimed a very low ash content. So since I know of three mining operations in Hazleton, I decided to look at their websites and both Jeddo and Atlantic (Stockton) claimed the same ash content that the local supplier was claiming. So I decided to take my little pickup truck for a ride to Jeddo and fill it up.
My first year of burning Jeddo was last winter. I was very happy with the difference I saw from Hudson. The Jeddo Coal burns much slower than the other and I had virtually no slate in the ash pan. This year however I have had some issues that are not coal quality related. I have more unburnt coal in my ash pan than last year. At first I thought there was a lot of slate, but if I break apart the unburnts it is pure coal. I believe I may need to replace the combustion blower to alleviate the problem. I think the original is still on the stove from the 80's.
So, I can't really give you a good description of the ash this year because of problems I am having with my stove this year. I can tell you that when I went to the breaker in November I paid $160 for a ton. It is very easy to load up there. You simply drive onto the scale, get weighed, move over to the area where the coal is and start shoveling. If you ask they will send a small loader over to fill it up for you. My truck is so small though it doesn't take long to fill it up. I believe you can also go directly to the breaker to be loaded up as I have seen coal trucks headed that way after being weighed. My truck can just about fit 3/4 of a ton so I have no need to do that.
As far as heat output, again Jeddo coal burns slow and the heat output seems quite sufficient. I always use a handful of match light charcoal and a propane torch to get is started and simply add a few scoops of coal to it to start my fire so I never have a problem lighting it. I have looked around for different prices. I have found that Casey Kassa was selling for $145 a ton, however I read that they are reclaiming spoil piles and not actually mining. I could be wrong, but I know that Jeddo is on a Mammoth seam and all of the coal is very shiny..almost like glass. There was a smaller operation near Tamaqua I considered getting coal from, but their cost was $185 a ton and a longer drive so I decided to stick with Jeddo.
I do not see much junk wood at all. A small piece here and there no bigger than a match. The uniformity is consistent. Jeddo has a newer processing plant built about 20 years ago.
Hope this helps.
