Thanks, Berlin for some interesting info on a rare form of coal.
To answer Duengeon master. I am burning high BTU bit coal in my Warm Morning stove, which is taken out of the Harlan, KY mines. It has low sulphur content and very large tonnages of this coal are burned in coal fired power plants in KY and TN, which is sold under long-term contract. Not a rare coal but a coal that my dealer says 'burns real good'.
