Colliery Developments in I Pembrokeshire. ) A LANDSHIPPING PROJECT. For some time past efforts have been made to secure a firm who would work the minerals on the Landshipping Estate, and we learn that a draft agreement is now being prepared between the trustees of Mr James Douglas Talbot Stanley, the owner, and Mr Arnold Lupton, M.I.C.E., F.G.H.'I, etc., ex-M.P., of Victoria Street, Westminster, and Mr Frederick Charles Swallow, M.E., Gloucester, to lease 2,139 acres or thereabouts for 60 years. Messrs Lupton and Swallow, as lessees, have the right to sink pits, erect colliery works, railways, tramways, bye-product works, electrical works, iron- works, &c. The reports of mining engineers go to show that there are 34 million tons of anthracite coal in the taking, with high percentage of carbon, some of it as high as 95 per cent. There are seven workable seams ranging from 2 ft. to 10 ft. thick. The Landshipping Estate borders on the river Cleddau, at the mouth of which wharves can be erected and coal shipped at little cost. With this in view negotiations are proceeding with firms at Cardiff and Grimsby to erect some huudrids of workmen's cottages in the district. It is proposed to spend X150,000 in the develop, meats.. Mr Arnold Lupton is well-known for the put he took as mineral adviser to Mr Lloyd George in his 1910 Budget.
