Need Help Finding Blacksmithing Coal in British Columbia Canada

Recommended Posts

I live in the Cariboo Region of BC and have so far had no success in finding a reasonable source of blacksmithing coal here. Home Hardware can order in coal from Ontario that originates in West Virginia, but the shipping is $25 per 50lb bag! I have watched several long BC coal trains headed overseas (and hoped for a lengthy stop on a siding or a spill) but no dice. The feed and ranch supply stores here don't have a clue. If anyone reading this can help steer me in the right direction I would be very appreciative. Steeler.

There is excellent quality metallurgical coal available directly from the mines in the Elkridge area. I realize Cariboo is fairly far from there, but it might pay to arrange a bulk shipment. You might be able to contact one of the coal companies (like Fording coal) to see what options they have and prices etc.

You could check with the folks at the Kootenay School for the Arts, they may be able to point you in the right direction. Or the Kootenay Blacksmith's Assoc.
