Almost all news reports of coal deal with bituminous, I doubt the Chinese would be interested in PA anthracite as their industies are run on bituminous as is ours and the cost would decrease their profit margins considerably.

They probably couldn't find a source further from China either, that would drive the transport costs very high too.
Nothing is impossible for people who don't have to do it themselves.
