Does anyone know anything about or burned coal from Gale Mining Co 1441 Oak Rd, Pottsville, PA 17901? This is what they emailed me. "Ed, our coal is cleaned to standard anthracite specifications which vary from size to size.ASTM allows nut coal to be 11% ash,pea coal 12%,And buck and rice must be 13% or better.We have a product that is consistently good and meets these minimum standards.Our feedstock is blended so our ash falls between red and white,we call it tan ash, and find blended coals to be less troublesome for the enduser"
