Anthracite- a Natural Resource in Pennsylvania
By Maggie Parke
  

1     Pennsylvania is a state rich in natural resources. One of the natural resources that is plentiful in Pennsylvania is coal, specifically hard coal. Another name for hard coal is anthracite. Coal comes from under the ground and is often found in "seams" or layers deep below the surface of the ground. Ninety-seven percent of the anthracite in the United States comes from Pennsylvania. There is about 7 billion tons of coal in Pennsylvania, which is enough to supply anthracite for the next 300 years.
 
2     Anthracite mining occurs in eight Pennsylvania counties. The counties are Schuykill, Carbon, Luzerne, Northumberland, Lackawanna, Columbia, Dauphin, and Sullivan. Mining can be a very difficult and very risky job.
