Coal Quality, looking good

PostBy: Short Bus On: Wed Feb 19, 2014 1:40 am

I was up getting some coal in Healy 2/15 and didn't think much about it. But I've been noticing my coal hopper is not going down as fast and it is making nice clinkers, which I like as it makes ash removal easier. I've been looking at the coal and where it is freshly broken it is like black glass, and I have very few fines, so the coal is defiantly harder. :) :!:
