Estimates of world coal reserves vary widely. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, recoverable world reserves of anthracite, bituminous, and subbituminous coal in the late 1990s totaled nearly 1 trillion metric tons. Of this recoverable coal, the U.S. held about 25 percent, Russia 16 percent, China 12 percent, Australia 9 percent, India 8 percent, Germany 7 percent, and South Africa 6 percent.

Coal is found in nearly every region of the world, but deposits of present commercial importance are confined to Eastern Europe and the former USSR, the U.S., China, Western Europe, and Australia.
Great Britain, which led the world in coal production until the 20th century, has deposits in southern Scotland, England, and Wales. In western Europe, important coalfields are found throughout the Alsace region of France, in Belgium, and in the Saar and Ruhr valleys in Germany. Central European deposits include those of Poland, the Czech Republic, and Hungary. The most extensive and valuable coalfield in the former Soviet Union is that of the Donets Basin between the Dnepr and Don rivers; large deposits have also been exploited in the Kuznetsk Basin in western Siberia. The coalfields of northwestern China, among the largest in the world, were little developed until the 20th century.

BUT>>>>>.... PA has the largest anthracite deposit in the world! :)

It's pretty amazing that pretty much all the anthracite in the USA is in about a 30 mile circle in PA.

From an advertising link on this very forum I found that I could order coal from places like Viet Nam and China. I got an excellent price, though I did have to order 12,500 metric tons. That's like 13,000 pounds, right? :|

1 metric ton = 2204.6 lbs. You would be ordering 275,575,000 lbs of coal. :shock: I wouldn't want to pay the shipping charges for that. :)

Jeff

Edit: From what I have read, Freddy might want to split the cost of a shipment that large. :D

Oops :roll: added an extra 0 to my figure. Should be 27,557,500 lbs. Still a lot either way you look at it. Wish I had the space and $$$ to order a truckload like others do. 23 ton would last me about 7yrs. Would save a few bucks avoiding the price increases over that period.

I found this when I was looking for an Ukrainian coal supplier:

As you can see on the 4th page, USA has only 20Mt remaining, but anthracite coal is still so popular in your country! :?

Sorry for writing in an so old threat :P
