From these photos it looks like whatever seam this coal originated in has a lot of iron oxide, at least Im guessing that's what the dark-yellow discolorations are. I thought broad top coal had very little impurities. Which seam was this mined from? And do you recommend this ROM coal for a steam locomotive?

My replies don't seem to be getting posted on here, is there something I'm doing wrong?

Some of the photos on here look very dirty, and there is clearly some iron oxide in the one lump on the back of the pickup truck. Is this coal able to be burned in a steam locomotive?
