Who We Are
We are a mining and resources company that has been responsibly operating “The Ffos-y-fran Land Reclamation Scheme” in the Merthyr Tydfil Area since 2007.
Alongside mining quality coal, we are restoring land that was once derelict, unstable and unsightly, to create a much improved environment which will benefit local people, hill farming and wildlife.
We have now submitted a planning proposal for a second project incorporating surface mining and land remediation to Caerphilly County Borough Council. The proposed site is called Nant Llesg, located at the Heads of the Valley between Merthyr and Rhymney.
At Nant Llesg we want to continue our record with Ffos–y–fran. With Ffos-y-fran we set out to prove that a significant modern mining site could coexist with the local community and deliver considerable benefits over the lifetime of the project.
We want to apply the same principles to Nant Llesg and show that mining much needed Welsh coal can make a positive contribution to the long term social and economic development of the surrounding area.
The very nature of surface mining means that our operations will rightly be under constant public scrutiny and regulatory supervision. As such we recognise that gaining the trust of the local community is a prize that we have to work very hard to achieve.
As with Ffos-y-fran much of the proposed Nant Lesg site has previously been worked for coal by former generations. This means that there are a large number of potential health and safety hazards on the site which prevent or limit public access. These threats will be removed by the mining process we propose and we will remediate the land, so that over time we will create a better environment than is currently the case.Read more
