UNPROVED COALFIELDS. I The report of the Geological Commit; EE to tho Royal Commission on Coal Supplies was issued on Monday as a Blue-book. The Committee, con- sisting of Professor Hull, Professor Lapworth, Mr. leail and Mr. A. Strahan. were appointed to inqune into the productive measures known or believed to exist outsida the areas dealt with by the District Commissioners. Among other figures which they gave in regaid to concealed and un- proved coalfields at depths less than 4,000 feet arc, the following. Cheshire Basin, including Stock- port and Poynton, coal available, 106,500.000 tons; Chester. Wirral and Liverpool district, 2,880,000,000 tons Vale of Eden and Soiway Filth. 800,000,000 tons; Yorkshire and Notts, 23.000,000.000 tons. Mr. Strahan in a sub-report says:—It would ap- pear that whether the coal measures, are con- tinuous under the Cheshire basin or not they are out of re-aoh under its southern and oentral parts. 1'"L Assuming mac IC would be a depth of 6,900ft. to the base of the Permian, an unknown but pos- sibly great thickness of the upper unproductive measures would then have to 00 traversed before the productive measures woidd be reached.. I have proceeded to ascertain the attenuation of the productive measures from Lancashire to Flint- shire. Nn one seam can be identified in both counties, but the productive series as a whole appears to ba confined to a vertical space of 700ft. at Aston and Manoot, while 400ft. of barren measures have been proved above them at Northop While, therefore, tho productive mea- sures diminish from 1,300ft. at Piescot to 700ft.. in Flintshire, the upper measures should diminish from 1,650ft. to 900ft. If this be the case, the 'I main coal may be expected at about 1,100 or 1.150ft. below the limestones under Sealands.
