Tlih NEW PITS AT BARGOED. COAL BORED INTO. C: ards of three years ago the Rhymney Iron and • <ai Company commenced sinking two new pit- ar each ether on the Gilfachfargoed Fawr li,ii,i, bove the Rhymney Railway Company's iin etween Bargoed and Twyu Star. The pui -x>e of the undertaking was to reach the well- k I; i seam of the Brithdir vein of house and coo" g coal, as their Cefn Brithdir and Darran Co nes were being fast worked out. Mr. Smith, the n:p my's resident manager, residing on the HIM ny-road, Bargoed, had the management air u rection of the work of sinking, &c., while Mr. W. Williams was the foreman over the siuKei S. The work has been greatly impeded frou; time to time owing to the very large influx oi wu er that flowed into the pits through the rock and clod strata which they have passed through. But these drawbacks have been thoroughly mastered under the efficient direct- ion of the management. Some time ago a powerful pumping engine was erected and a large pumping 1 f t fixed in the shaft, and the water has b ;en kept well under since. The shafts have been sunk to a depth of over 250 yards or more. Not finding the coal at the depth ex- pected, sinking operations were suspended last month, and since then the workmen have been engaged in boring down a hoie to ascertain how much deeper the shaft would have to be sunk, and about eight o'clock on Wednesday night they reached the coal, which was, of course, the cause of great rejoicing in the district.
