And taking one's pick: coal, zinc, coal, nickel and more coal :lol: Coal mining museum?

P'ter Mar 7 2010 04:48 AM

Re: Where in the World #255
 
Anthracite?

AnnMarie Mar 7 2010 10:33 AM

Re: Where in the World #255
 
Jube and P'ter: Yes...although I am not sure you knew you were asking the same thing. In Pennsylvania, the mines were athracite (Hard coal) In Virginia and Kentucky, they are Bismuth (soft coal)

jube Mar 8 2010 09:42 AM

Re: Where in the World #255
 
According to Google, Pennsylvania came up with 3 different types of mining so I was generalising about coal as a starting point, can't answer for P'ter though ... I'll start with the first "cab off the rank" and ask if it's the Powerhouse museum?

My alter-ego with a geology degree finds it necesary to point out that bismuth is an element; you meant bituminous coal for the soft variety.

You may now return to your questions and answers. :)

Re: Where in the World #255
 
Jube: no
Cheryl: I had a feeling I was screwing up on the spelling. I had taken my migraine meds when I answered that. At least it wasn't completely out in the ozone....

P'ter Mar 8 2010 11:38 AM

Re: Where in the World #255
 
There are also lignite and brown coal.

West of a N-S line through Harrisburg?

AnnMarie Mar 8 2010 01:29 PM

Re: Where in the World #255
 
HAD to make me look at a map, didn't you, P'ter?

The answer is no, it is not west of a N-S line through Harrisburg.

Which should narrow things considerably, since it cuts off 2/3 of the state.

P'ter Mar 8 2010 05:02 PM

Re: Where in the World #255
 
Right: since you have the map out ...

north of an E-W line through Sunbury?

jube Mar 8 2010 08:09 PM

Re: Where in the World #255
 
Ann-Marie, well courtesy of P'ter, I've still got gold mining on the brain :lol: *chuckles* ...

Anyway, in the triangle represented by Reading, Trenton and Lancaster?

AnnMarie Mar 8 2010 09:06 PM

Re: Where in the World #255
 
P'ter : Yes
Jube: therefore no, since that triangle is south of Sunbury

P'ter Mar 9 2010 05:20 AM

Re: Where in the World #255
 
Sussex County?

AnnMarie Mar 9 2010 10:13 AM

AnnMarie Mar 10 2010 06:20 PM

Re: Where in the World #255
 
CW: I'm not sure....I can get there from my aunt's house, but don't ask me the street names are!

AnnMarie Mar 11 2010 06:20 PM
