    We have a coal stove that uses anthracite rice coal. Is the dust from this stove dangerous to us? Also can the ash from this coal be mixed in the garden?


    It is not good to breathe a LOT of dust of ANY kind from any source. For the casual user- however- the dust from hard coal has never been proven dangerous. The ash from coal stoves contains some heavy metals such as mercury and is not a balanced mix for the garden (wood ash is OK)...I always place my coal ash on a dirt or gravel driveway or else in the trash....
