Not likely AB, It looks like processed coal. Clean and pretty fine.

Looks like Rice coal shooting off a conveyor but I'm sure Banks wants where this conveyor is located. I suspect there's a funny story of some nature behind the pic.

yeah sure do doug!

I don't really have access to that stash of pics right now though, so I'll tell ya till i do...

It was a high lift coal truck in tamaqua that was unloading coal into a house that was sitting so far above street level that even with the box as high as it went they still had to put a small gas powered conveyor up to the house and into the coal bin door. Pretty neat operation.. have to dig those pics up at some point.
