Rose Heyworth Colliery Tender for the sinking of the Shaft 1874

Rose Heyworth Colliery Tender for the Sinking of the Shaft 1874.
After the sidings and out-buildings were laid out, tenders for the sinking of the colliery were invited and issued on March 14th 1874 (as seen in the clipping from the Western Mail left).

I have no details as to who sunk the colliery though Mr Joseph Wallace, general manager of the Cwmtillery Colliery and Mr William Adams C.E. (Cardiff) drove a tunnel from the Cwmtillery Colliery through the Mynydd James mountain in readiness to connect to Rose Heyworth Colliery for ventilation purposes.

The Proof of the Date of Sinking.
Many years ago I found through much research, that the Rose Heyworth Colliery was not sunk in 1871 as published in books, modern papers and other articles. Everyone blindly believed the made-up sinking date of 1871 and what had been printed and much plagiarised over the years. This Western Mail news clipping validates my research.
