Hello,

Just looking to see who here buys from Split Vein/Anthracite in Shamokin. Have heard that nut is $150/ton this year. Anyone confirm?

Also concerned about the quality. Is it washed or oiled? My uncle buys from them and said there is some rock mixed in, not sure how much. Opinions?

May head there Thursday for a ton or two, any advice welcome :).

Thanks,

Joe

I bought the cheap bank coal from split vein and had an unreal amount of trouble. In one half ton load of pea I hand picked almost a 1/2 a five gallon bucket of rock and trash. It didn't burn worth a flip and created a huge load of ash. If it's all you can afford and don't mind the hassels, burn it. Otherwise step up to Calvin Lenig's south of Trevorton or run out to UAE in Mt. Carmel. For the UAE in Mt. Carmel, your only talkin an extra 20 bucks a ton and the difference for that 20 bucks is AMAZING.

Dont go cheap on coal... take it from this fella. You will get what you pay for. Its just like anything else, your paying for quality control. No matter what the coal business is going to recoup their claiming costs like fuel and labor. It doesnt take quality control to get the coal to market. A whise old bastard on this site told me once, If it sounds too good to be true it usually is.
