Agway, Oakland MD - $115.00/ton dumped in your truck or trailer from the Lower Pittsburgh Seam is what I am told. I have to burn Oak with it to get it to burn completely to ash and it has a lot of fines in it.

Picked up a couple ton of run of mine from Grove City PA. $70/ton
Rusnak 724-967-5589 says open Saturdays 9-3 and appointment.
105 Old School Rd Grove City PA
Had a steady stream of people when I was there couple weeks ago.
Good mix of large lump to fines. Did find a couple rocks in it. I don't have much experience with Bit but seems to burn pretty good in my OWB. Does put off a ton of heavy smoke at first. Burns down pretty complete after arranging the coals a couple times.

Unfortunately I live near Boston, Mass & unless I was to tow a trailer to Penn to get it at a dealer or from the mine it has to be bought in bags on a pallet or a large sack wrapped & strapped to a pallet. I could buy a 20-25 ton load to cut costs but I live on a small size piece of property. A 950 mile R/T to Clearfield, Penn last summer to get one ton and haul it back cost $600. Still looking for & working on solutions, any help would be appreciated.

Not to change the subject, but I live in North Dakota near the lignite coal fields. It is used extensively in the coal fired power plants. It's shipped by the train loads, so was wondering if anyone has used it. I can buy stoker coal it's about 60 miles one way.
How much should one expect to pay.

They have prices on their website and its cheap. I think they give BTU ratings too. You can get it any size you want it I think. I do have a local selling it here now but at a higher price of course. There have been a few members here from North and South dakota and i think? Canada that use it.

Its low in BTU compared to Anthracite but once you get the price you can compare it to your other heat choices with those BTU for cost savings. theres a calculator on this website https://coalpail.com/fuel-comparison-calculator-home-heating

You can change figures around for comparison.

I'm looking here in Southern WV. I feel like I shouldn't have to work this hard to find usable coal around here...
