ABRIDGED PROSPECTUS. This Company has been formed to acquire and work the Padeswood Hall Colliery, now being carried on .by the Vendors, together with the valu- able beds of Coal and Fireclay underlying the land of Messrs. Hancock (Padeswood Hall Estate). Also to take and work the same minerals under the ad joining lands of Colonel Tomkinson, Wilson Carstairs Jones, Esq., and the Lords of Mold. The total area is about 600 acres, and comprises a field for mineral enterprise of a very promising character. The Company will have the advantage of a small capital on which to pay dividends. The Vendors have converted their undertaking into a Company solely for the purpose of obtaining some additional Capital to assist in further development; and it will be seen that they rely almost entirely upon the future profits of the Company for their price,' so sure are they of its soundness. The Colliery is in thorough working order, and is capable of raising from 200 to 250 tons per day of Coal and Slack. The Padeswood Hall Estate, on which the Pits are sunk, has an area of about 200 acres, under which the Vendors have the right to work the Minerals under an agreement for a Lease for 14 years, renewable at the option of the Vendors, at a dead rent merging in a royalty of one-fourteenth for Coal, and X20 per kiln per annum for goods manufactured from Fireclay, the benefits of which will be transferred to the Company. The situation of the Collierj—close to the Wrex- ham, Mold and Connah's Quay Railway with which it is connected by a Branch Line-enables it to com- mand a direct route, with an easy rate of carriage via Wirral Railway, to ,the important Ports of Birkenhead and Connah's Quay ready access is also obtained at Hope Junction to the London and North-Western Railway. Its proximity to the numerous brickworks of the Buckley district has supplied it with an ample and profitable outlet for all slack and nuts; these have proved to be very suitable f brick making and other manufacturing purposes. It in intended to erect brickworks in direct connection with the Colliery, thus providing a more profitable home consump- tion. The Coal raised from the present seam finds a ready market for house consumption. The Colliery and other areas to be acquired have been inspected and favourably reported upon by Mr. Nathanael R. Griffith, of London and Wrexhatn, Associate R.S.M., F.G.8., Engineer of the well- known Kent Coalfields Syndicate Limited, &c.; I Mr. Jenkin Humphries, of Chester, Certificated Colliery Manager, Mineral Surveyor, and Colliery Viewer to Mr. J C. Edwards, Terra Cotta Works, Ruabon; and Mr. W. McCulloch, Mining Engineer, Mold. The following seams of Coal are expected to be worked in easy distance, viz ;— At 120 Yards-Hollin Coal 4ft. 9in. (now being worked). At 150 Yards—Braasey Coal 4ft. Oin. At 190 Yards—Main Coal lift. Oin. Total workable Coal 19ft. 9in. Taking the quantity of Coal in the present seam only, according to the estimate in Mr. N. R. Griffith's supplementary Report, the profit to be anticipated from Coal would be Average selling price, large and small, per ton at the pit. 5s. Od. Cost as per Reports, per ton at the pit, say 4 0 Estimated profit per ton 1 0 allowing 6d. per ton fo» recoupment of Capital, &c. tben 50,000 tons per annum at 6d. per ton, 91,250 per annum. This is from the Hollin Seam, now being worked, alone, and does not include the lower seams, the profit on which would be a clear addition to this. In addition to the seams of Coal the property contains very valuable beds of Fireclay. These seams of Fireclay are pronounced to be the same seams now being worked by brick manufacturers in parts of the Buckley and adjoining districts. The Clay is of ample thickness for profitable work- ing, and is eminently adapted for the manufacture of best Buff Bricks, best Enamelled or Glazed I Bricks, Tiles, and Sanitary Ware. -0 prospectus. The Vendors have hitherto confined themselves to working Coal; but by a comparatively small expenditure of Capital the Company will be able to manufacture high-class Clay Goods, which com- mand a ready and remunerative sale. The Vendors have had a careful estimate made of the cost of erecting four kilns (total capacity 80,000 bricks), brick-making machinery, drying sheds, &c.; and it is considered that the whole brickworks can be erected in working order for about £ 2,000. The Fireclay has been specially examined and reported upon by Messrs. B. B. Glover and Sons, Mining Engineers, Manchester, who say .-— reported upon by Messrs. B. B. Glover and Sons, Mining Engineers, Manchester, who say:- 23rd July, 1897. PADESWOOD HALL ESTATE.—FIRECLAY. I Immediately underneath the Coal is a very fine bed of Fireclay. A borehole has been put down six feet in this without passing through it, and, from sample bricks made therefrom, it is capable of producing the best Buff Bricks and Tiles, which will take a beautiful glaze, and be sure to command very high prices. Bricks for residential purposes will sell at from 403. to 60s. per thousand; cost of production, including every charge, we estimate at 20s. per thousand. The Enamelled T>r Glazed Bricks will sell at from JE7 to X10 per thousand; cost of same, all inclusive, about 45s. per thousand. B. B. GLOVER & SONS. With an output of only 10,000 Enamelled Bricks, 20,000 Best Facing Bricks, and 10,000 Seconds Bricks per week, it will be seen that the profit to be expected is Per week. Enamelled Bricks, 10,000 at 55s. per 1,000 £ 27 10 0 Best Buff Facing Bricks, 20,000 at 20s. per 1,000 20 0 0 Seconds Buff Bricks, 10,000 at 10s. per 1,000 5 0 0 Estimated Profit per week £ 52 10 0 equal to S2,625 per annum, or more than 13 per cent. upon the present issue of £ 20,000. It will be noted that this profit is upon an output of only 40,000 bricks per week and is exclusive altogether of the profits to be derived from the manufacture of Tiles, Sanitary Ware, &c., which are consider- able. Taking the whole undertaking, the following will be seen to be the yield to be anticipated Per annum. Profit on Bricks zC2,625 0 0 Ditto Coal 1,250 0 0 RZ,875 0 0 Deduct Interest on Debentures, X3,000 at 5 per cent. 150 0 0 Leaving to pay Dividend on Ordinary Shares £ 3,725 0 0 Equal to 18 per cent. upon the present issue. The Pits, Plant, Railway Siding, &c., have been valued by Messrs. B. B. Glover & Sons, Mining Engineers, Manchester, at the sum of £ 7,758. The price to be paid to the Vendors (Mr. Edward Wheldon, of The Laurels, near Mold, J.P., Member of the Flintshire County Council, and Mr. John Green, of Lane End, Buckley, Certificated Colliery Manager) for the whole property has been fixed at the low sum of zelo,ooo; of which R3,000 is to be paid in Debentures, and R7,000 in Ordinary Shares. They take no cash on account of their purchase money. This sum does not repay them for the actual expenditure upon the Property, but the Vendors confidently expect that the introduction of the fresh Capital to properly develop the resources of the property will result in large divi- dends to all Shareholders. They are therefore satisfied to let their purchase money practically depend upon the future prosperity of the property they sell. They can give no greater proof of their bond, fides than this affords. No promotion money has been or will be paid by the Company. No shares have been underwritten. Copies of the Memorandum and Articles of Association of the Company, and the original Reports, Valuation, and Contract referred to in this Prospectus, may be seen at the Offices of the Company. Prospectuses and Forms of Application may be obtained at the Offices of the Company, or their Solicitor, Bankers, Brokers, and Auditors. Chester, 17th September, 1897. WRIGHT'S HAIRDRESSING ROOMS.
