Heres a soulsearcher for youth. As a pre teen me an pop a coal miner for the old L C N now Lehigh every summer picked coal lumps off a refuse culm bank .Poor necessity as the mine worked 3 days a week .About 10 years ago I visited a strip mine owned by two guys .Ten percent of Lump Coal was in the backfill material .I aske can I have it .I secured some 2 ton .Last year I arranged for 6 ton of lumps from a Deep mine nearby . Between brick jobs I crack this coal .Now I probably work doing this for peanuts but the cracking tradition is soul Searching an Therapy an its Pretty Damn Deep Mine Coal .Your comments . jack
