I was just going through some things on Grain Into Gold. Under the coal item, it says that a man can pull 500lbs of coal out of a mine in a day. It then says that that is for the good coal (smith quality) and that “regular” coal costs 15sc for 2,000lbs. This might imply that a man can pull twice as much cheap coal out of a mine as he can good coal. While there might be some truth to this, double is not a fair estimate, and it wasn’t meant to be. The cheaper coal is actually strip mined and therefore does not need to be carried out of a mine. Hope that makes more sense.
