In some cases the states site doesn't even have the veins right i.e. the have veins listed for some southern field mines that don't even exist in the southern field. The mine that is listed as Kimmels whites vein mine isn't the mine that kimmels was working with the fancy equipment. Kimmels Whites mine is a slope formerly known as Tito just a few hundred feet towards Tower City away from there big deep mine. As far as what Kimmels big mine produced it was on the order of 26,000 +/- tons mostly in one quarter in 2008. And that is about right if you talk to the guys that were there. As far as the numbers for B&B and Orchard being funny if there off there not off by much. for mines that have around 8-12 guys underground there doing all right.

You where missing my point Mike The Numbers if anything would be on the light side By the way I told you a few weeks ago that I was using MSHA site and if I Remember when we talked last you thought B&B & Orchard numbers Production # where heavy for 8 Guys in The B&B Mine And 9 In The Orchard Mine . Anyway I don't really care what the Numbers are I am not making any money off of them :lol:

The numbers off the MSHA site are about what they should be for a mine of those sizes. The numbers off the state site are way high for the one,by 95,000 tons or so! But anyway the point of my original post was that just because there is stripped mined coal in the mix doesn't make it bad...................look at all the satisfied superior and summit users on here. And as J.C. knows I do make money from Anthracite coal. I work for Jeddo Coal Company and Alfred Brown 7ft. Slope. Just figured I'd throw that in there for arguments sake :lol:

I bought 7 tons delivered from the TAMAQUA Pa. area for $220/ton/bagged, early Dec 09, to NJ. Butch is a great guy and this is the best coal I've burned. I've burned Blaschak for the past 3 yrs.

Does anyone know a place near Buffalo I can get a good price on stove coal?.

I have just put in a Hotblast furnace and learning how to use this thing. It has been fun. The best price I can find around here is .16 cents per pound.
Being rather close to Pennsylvania I thought there must be someone selling stove coal at a better price that I could
go and pick it up by the truck load.
Any suggestions would really help
Thanks

Can any body tell me what the best rice coal to get for a Harman Magnum stoker? Had centralia and cannot get bagged in area. My choices are Blaschak (ran before had alot of sticks and wood tons of fines too) or Reading ( my buddy runs in an Alaska stoker and likes better than Blaschak) I noticed nobody seem to like Reading but its very easy to get 5 or more dealers carry locally. Blaschak is about an hour away and from past exp we both had alot of crap in it . Thanks

I live just over the Pa. border in NY. Matamoras, Pa. is about 15 miles and Honesdale, Pa. is about 45 miles.

Can any one tell me where the closest breakers are to me?

Go to Hudson anthracite, which is in pittston (just south of scranton). I believe that is the closest breaker to you. I have been getting coal there at 150.00 ton. I am happy with their coal. Good stuff. :D

Thank you C.B. & Hugg.

To make this worthwhile I'll need to find other locals to split the load and costs.

Right now I DIY it and go to a reseller in Honesdale for 2.5 tons which is the max I can haul and what I use for the season, 90 mile round trip.

It would be about 190 miles round trip to Hudson but the savings of around $50/ton won't be worth the extra drive and expense unless I could double my load capacity.

Based on my experience with Summit, Lenig, Superior, and UAE the best burning blend is Superior and UAE, it combines the best heat with the low ash of UAE.

Summit Anthracite coal co.Inc 9 % Ash Content
UAE Harmony Mine 6.75 To 7.25 % Ash Content
Lenig Calvin V Coal co. 10% Ash Content

I did a Google search for each of these coal companies, but did not find one website; like you find for Reading and Blaschak Coal companies.
Are there retail or breaker locations in PA to purchase these brands?
Has anyone heard of these brands being shipped outside of PA in bags?
