Frostburg in Allegany County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
It was Consolidation's Frostburg area coal mines and Maryland steam coal that supplies the Cunard Steamship Line, and was also the preferred coal of the United States Navy because of its "smokeless" qualities. Consolidation coal was shipped worldwide and in 1898 Frostburg area mines also provided the blacksmithing coal for the Klondike gold fields of the Canadian Yukon.
