I use Premium Fine Coal from S. Tamaqua. They have been getting their raw coal from LC&N. It's the best burning coal I've seen in a long time. I recommend giving them a try and judge for your self.
Premium Fine coal co and South Tamaqua coal Pockets inc are two different Companies not the same coal
South Tamaqua coal Pockets Get a lot of LC&N Mine Run/ Raw coal Premium Fine coal co Does not . Premium coal co.
is about a half mile behind South Tamaqua coal Pockets . Two different location Two different coal breakers & Co.
J.C. Better check your info. South Tamaqua Coal Pockets runs their own stripping operations just outside of McAdoo and produce most of their own ROM coal. Premium Fine also runs a small stripping operation in the Tuscarora area, but they purchase most of their ROM coal from LC&N. I was at the breaker today picking up a load of coal when they received several tri-axle loads from LC&N. I was getting coal from South Tamaqua Coal Pockets, but their quality hasn't been as good as it was in the past. There seemed to be more bone and slate then in the past. I started getting coal from Premium Fine about a year ago and have had no problems. High BTU's and low ash.
Well kevinP I live 10 Miles From Both Places I also live few miles from Tuscarora I know where they both get there coal
from Yes Both Have Surface mine operations of there own. But S.T . also buys from LC&N the owner had some money invested in LC&N Glenwood breaker. Premium also runs Refuse coal . That does not Suprise me that they are buying off of LC&N Now Like Most Coal co. when the demade is high and they can't keep up they buy raw coal from whereever they can get it .I Just Bought 1440 lbs of LC&N coal on the 16th I will not be going back I wanted Buck it was oversized So I got Rice well it was more Barley size then Rice with alot of Dirt Wood & COAL ASH in it . With no btu output and it is suposed to be 9 % ash content well it is more like 15.50 % So you can have all of it you want . I will drive my Usual 23 miles and buy good coal for less money ..
