Tin Mines - Nation on Film - Drill & Blast  - Cornwall
 
28:10
Here's a fascinating documentary about the decline of the Cornish Tin Mining Industry - Nation on Film - Drill & Blast - BBC 2003. I copied this from a tape loaned to me about 10 years ago so sorry about the missing last couple of minutes of the programme. Nation on Film - Drill & Blast - Tin Mines. The tin that was mined in Cornwall helped to fuel the hi-tech consumer revolution that changed all our lives. But the close-knit communities that worked in the mines paid a heavy price. Until the post-war era, under investment in the mines made them hazardous places to work. Through archive film footage and testimony from miners and their families, Nation On Film examines the backbreaking toil that went on hundreds of feet below the Cornish landscape. The daughter of a miner describes how she would try and stop her father from going to work because of the dust disease that killed many miners. Early black and white film shows surface workers attempting to protect themselves from arsenic, which is also found in tin mines, by tying handkerchiefs around their faces. The mines began to close when the system for supporting the international price of tin collapsed. The Cornish miners took their case to Westminster but were refused long-term assistance. As the mines closed, a sense of betrayal was felt in the mining communities and the Cornish countryside still bears the scars of the disused mines."

History of Cornish Mining - Cligga Mine Revisited - Poldark Times

Cornish Tin Mine and Mining History - Cligga Mine Revisited - Cligga Head, Perranporth Cornwall. 3 ghostly images are in the footage from Nosferatu (copyright expired). Revisit of Cligga Tin Mine with much improved lighting, filmed on my GoPro3, 3 hour trip condensed into 30 minutes no software enhancement required. Cree t6 and XML-U2 lamps provide incredible lighting. Bob and myself both have extensive knowledge of mines and mining techniques through working in the industry, old workings are extremely dangerous and must only be entered with a full understanding of how they work, many transfer chutes, winzes, shafts and open stopes make it a hazardous environment. History of Cligga Mine. Cligga Wolfram & Tin Mine lies on the cliff tops about one and a quarter miles southwest of Perranporth on the North Cornish coast. The granite pegmatite cliffs have been altered to greisen and exhibit jointing and veining. The veins often filled with cassiterite (tin oxide), wolframite, mispickel (arsenical pyrite) and the copper/iron suphides, chalcopyrite and bornite. Silver ore has also been reported here. There is one shaft on the sett called Contact Shaft and two adits, one at beach level called Beach Adit, the other atop the cliffs and unsurprisingly called Cliff Adit. The mine worked in the early part of the twentieth century although 'Old Men's Workings' from the past are quite visible as you approach the area. Mining restarted in 1938 after a period of closure prior to the mine being taken over by the 'Rhodesian Mines Trust Limited in 1939'. Trials were carried out around this time to see if it was more feasible to work the stockwork as an open cast pit rather than an underground mine, but this came to nothing. There is surprisingly little information on Cligga although there are production records showing that between 1940 and 1944, 300 tons of wolfram and 200 tons of black tin were raised and sold. 1945 Cligga Mine closed. The War was nearly over and shipments of American tungsten were now arriving regularly in England. The high cost of producing a small quantity of tungsten from Cligga could no longer by justified and therefore, production at Cligga was halted. In 1962 the 'Geevor Mining Company took out a lease on the mine and in collaboration with the Sungesi Besi, Tronoh and Panang Companies started a programme of shaft rehabilitation and deepening with a view to re-opening the mine. Contact shaft was deepened to 550 feet from surface, drives 'on lode' were started both seawards and inland. However water was hit at about 250 feet from the shaft and work there abandoned. The seaward drive continued for some 800 feet before further exploration by diamond drilling commenced. The results were inconclusive, and by early 1964 Geevor had decided to unwater 'Levant' mine instead of re-opening Cligga. 1976 there was renewed interest in mining for tin on a small scale at Cligga, and Wheal Concord undertook a limited programme of evaluation. Wheal Concord Ltd planned to re-open contact shaft in 1984-1985, but the collapse of the tin-market in October 1985 put a stop to this. Cornish tin mines are dangerous only people with knowledge of working mines should enter but then only with extreme caution.

Cligga Mine modern history. 1938 September 21st the "Cligga Wolfram and Tin Mines Ltd" was founded and soon after completion of the installation the rich ore veins were exploited. 1939 The Rhodesian Mines Trust Ltd. took over the company Contact shaft was extended until it reached close to sea level and new stopes were drilled to fully exploit the ore body. 1940, vibration from blasting caused the first of several collapses of the area of cliffs housing the process water pumps (at the northern end of the beach). Eventually, a tunnel was driven to the northwest and a new pump chamber established just above sea level, well away from the effects of blasting. 1941 with the new pump system functional, it was possible to increase production. However, although production had increased, the cost of production had also increased. 1945 Cligga Mine closed. The War was nearly over and shipments of American tungsten were now arriving regularly in England. The high cost of producing a small quantity of tungsten from Cligga could no longer by justified and therefore, production at Cligga was halted.

Cornwall's Geevor Tin Mine
 
01:44
The PBS series Poldark shows the heyday of Cornwall's tin-mining industry. But in the late 20th century, that industry collapsed. And today, the last mine to close is now open to visitors — dedicated to telling the miners’ story. The Geevor Mine, which closed in 1990, represents the last hurrah not only of Cornish tin mining, but, in a sense, of Britain's Industrial Age. Exploring it, I gained a better appreciation for the simple yet noble lives of miners. And my visit nudged me to consider more thoughtfully the plight of miners in the USA. Causing you to see things differently — whether you tend to be liberal or conservative — is a powerful value of travel. If you travel and don’t find yourself reconsidering things you thought you understood in at least a little different light, perhaps the value of your experience is being needlessly blunted by a closed mind. What are some ways that your travel experience has shaken your strongly held ways of seeing things? This is Day 79 of my 100 Days in Europe series. As I research my guidebooks and make new TV shows, I’m reporting on my experiences and lessons learned in Vienna, the Alps, the Low Countries, England, and beyond.

A Cornish iron and tin mine - Part 1
 
09:54
We explore a iron and tin mine in east Cornwall, the mine which was last worked around 1912. There are 2 accessable adits in the hillside, this is the lower one, more extensive than the upper one. They are connected by a incline shaft and a winze. - Please drop by my new facebook page and give me a like: https://www.facebook.com/CornishMineExplorer/ - Important Note: We don't post the real names of the mines featured in our videos, to protect the sites and to stop others with less experience putting themselves in danger. If you know this place, please don't mention it by name or location. Our team consists of ex miners, cavers and mine rescue, every trip is taken with caution and callouts made to other members of where we are underground. Please do not put yourself at risk or others by entering these abandonded mines.

History of Cornish Mining - Botallack Mine - Features in Poldark
 
03:01
Visit to Botallack Mine April 2014. The Botallack Mine is in west Cornwall, United Kingdom. The village is in a former tin mining area situated between the town of St Just in Penwith and the village of Pendeen. Crown Mines, former tin mines, are low down the cliffs north of Botallack. There are two engine houses here and the mine extends for about 400 metres out under the Atlantic ocean; the deepest shaft is 250 fathoms (about 500m) below sea level. The mine ruins in the area are protected by the National Trust.There are two arsenic works opposite the Botallack Mine count house. At the top of the cliffs there are also the remains of one of the mine's arsenic-refining works. The BBC television series Poldark was filmed partly in Botallack, using Manor Farm as Nampara. The mining developments around Botallack form part of the St Just mining district's successful inclusion in the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage site which was approved in July 2006.

RR7043B BRITAIN: REVIVAL OF TIN MINING
 
07:07
RR7043B BRITAIN: REVIVAL OF TIN MINING The tin mining industry in Cornwall died not because the mines were worked out but because of a world slump in tin prices in 1890, which killed off most firms, and then the Great Depression of the 1930s which closed the rest. But the spiralling price of tin in today's world market, coupled with new methods of mining the ore, look like producing a second mining boom in Cornwall. Already some of the old mines are being reopened and big mining interests are watching on the sidelines ready to make large-scale investment in the mines if world prices rise even higher.

History of Cornish Mining - Recent times - Modern Mines
 
03:39
Recent trip to abandoned tin mine 11th May. Very poor ground conditions here with loads of steel supports. Although Cornish mining is associate by many as hundred year old sites with granite engine houses, there were some modern ones. South Crofty, Geevor, Wheal Jane, Mount Wellington, Nangiles, Wheal Concord and Pendarves all have closed in more recent times and would have had the distinctive steel head gear similar to the coal pits of the North and Wales. Geevor Tin mine near St Just remains as a museum to this by gone age and is well worth a visit if on holiday in Cornwall as does Heartlands in Pool. All of these mines still hang in the balance as tin prices sore on the metal exchange due to high demand for solder, as lead can no longer be used. All music is my own creation, filming on GoPro3.

History of Cornish Mining - The Time Tunnel - Great Flat Lode
 
15:48
My Exploration of the Great Flat Lode 15th June 2014 In the 1860s a 2 mile long 'lode' of tin ore was discovered in this area, where copper had previously been worked. Lying at an angle of 30 degrees, rather than the more usual 70 degrees, it was flatter than most, giving it its name the 'Great Flat Lode'. Drilling holes in the hard Cornish rock was time consuming and hard work. Early miners drilled holes by hand and used black gunpowder to blast the rock apart. A steal drill rod, was used to create the hole using a hammer or two miners hammering for increased speed. The steal was turned after each hit of the hammer, this would chip out a piece of rock. This would eventually create a round hole. The drilled hole was called a 'shothole'. black gunpowder could be poured into the hole and ignited to blast the rock apart. Drilling holes in the hard rock of Cornwall was laborious and time consuming.

Breaking News  - Could Cornwall see tin mining return?
 
07:24
The glory days of tin mining may be about to return to Cornwall in an unexpected revival of the historic industry which provided the backdrop to the Poldark novels and BBC TV drama.In towns such as Redruth and Camborne, locals still talk of their pride in the industry which is also celebrated through monuments such as the 90ft granite column Carn Brea, a tribute to a mining philanthropist.The county’s tin mining industry disappeared in 1998 when Camborne’s South Crofty followed other mines in closing due to a collapse in the metal’s value.But now the bosses of an international mineral exploration firm, who include the son of a former South Crofty worker, are determined to put Cornwall back on the tin map by reopening the mine.Strongbow Exploration plans to list on the London Stock Exchange by June this year and to get South Crofty back up and running by 2021.It also has ambitions for the mine, which traces its history back more than 400 years, to compete with rivals in China and Indonesia.‘Geologically, Cornwall has shown over the last couple of thousand years – dating back to the bronze age – that there is a high level of metal endowment here,’ said Strongbow chief executive Richard Williams, a professional geologist.His ambition is for South Crofty to supply up to 1.5 per cent of the world’s tin – or around 4,500 out of 350,000 tons currently consumed each year.At current prices, this would mean annual revenues of $90 million to $110 million (£63 million to £77 million).The Cornish tin-mining industry is said to date back more than 2,500 years. It peaked between 1750 and 1850 – the period in which the TV drama Poldark is set – when it was a world leader.Mining still flourished sufficiently to be a major provider of jobs until the late 20th Century. But a sharp drop in the price of tin –from $20,000 to $5,000 a ton – prompted by a fall in demand and the 1985 collapse of the International Tin Council, which protected prices, proved fatal for Cornwall’s mines. By 1991, South Crofty was the last one standing. It closed in March 1998 when its owners, who still employed 200 people, were unable to secure a rescue package from the Government.Just three years later, tin staged a recovery after a ban on lead being used in solders.Now, the metal is used in most electrical items, including mobile telephones, and its price has recovered to above $20,000 a ton.There have been several attempts to revive South Crofty in the past 20 years. But Strongbow is convinced, in part thanks to planning permissions and licences already secured, that it can succeed where others have failed.Owen Mihalop, a mining engineer from Cornwall whose father was managing director of South Crofty in the 1980s, is Strongbow’s chief operating officer and is based at the site.Mihalop, who trained at Camborne’s School of Mines, believes the company’s plans – which he hopes will create 300 jobs – can be a major boost for the local economy.He said residents are overwhelmingly supportive, a AutoNews- Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/article-5616395/Could-Cornwall-tin-mining-return.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

West Cornwall Mines
 
05:24
A scenic look at some of the old tin mines and engine houses in the far West of Cornwall. At one time this was one of the most industrialised parts of Britain. Pretty much the opposite now. Two of the mines featured in this video had Cornwall's worst mining disasters. At Levant mine in 1919 the lift (man engine) carrying the miners to work broke sending 31 men plummeting to their deaths. An even more horrific accident took place in the mine next door. At Wheal Owles In 1893 a miscalculation lead to the sea breaching the mine drowning 20 men.

History of Cornish Tin Mines - Kill the Wabbit another underground adventure with Gazman. In this episode of History of Cornish Tin Mines, we start up at the engine houses in Troon before entering an undisclosed mine. With a little Buggs Bunny chase for fun, this trip visits 2 big stopes and the shaft station. This place would make an epic horror movie but as always, experience and a high degree of caution is required in this sort of environment and certainly not for the inexperienced or unguided, to top that off bad air needs monitoring as it gets very thin in places. The shaft here is 950 feet deep and concrete lined to perfection down to 700 feet, with a modern ladder way, zinc tin and copper were mined here in the large stopes that range from 1 metre wide to 19 metres wide. If you're on holiday in Cornwall and would like to look around a Cornish Tin Mine I would recommend Geevor Tin Mine at Pendeen, this is where I worked as a miner, the staff and the historic set up here are excellent and a short walk from here is the excellent Levant Mine museum where you can visit the scene of the 1919 disaster, this is run by the national trust.

A new ‘gold rush’ for Cornwall: New £50billion mines could be Europe’s sole source of precious lithi
 
04:23
A new ‘gold rush’ for Cornwall: New £50billion mines could be Europe’s sole source of precious lithium Cornwall looks set for a £50billion mining revolution after plans were revealed to make Poldark country Europe's sole producer of lithium. Lithium - known as 'white petroleum' - is used in the rapidly growing market for electric cars and rechargeable batteries in everything from mobile phones to cordless vacuums. Most lithium is produced in South America, Australia and China but there are vast quantities locked inside its large granite stores up to 1,000 metres below the Cornish soil. But with no European source the UK Government has earmarked lithium as a metal of strategic importance to the country and new mines could be opened or existing ones brought back into action. Mining company Cornish Lithium wants to use new technology to extract lithium from hot spring brines in the granite deep underground in Cornwall. Veins of lithium can run through rock or can also be extracted by evaporating it from seawater containing the element. The firm announced that it has secured a mineral rights agreement with Canada's Strongbow Exploration and Mineral Exploration and has also reached agreement with significant landowner Tregothnan Estates to carry out exploration for lithium across Cornwall. It hopes the move will put Cornwall 'back on the map' as a mining centre and lead the UK into an exciting market. The company believes the exploration project would be the 'largest, single, unified mineral exploration programme in Cornwall's history'. Jeremy Wrathall, chief executive of Cornish Lithium, said: 'We believe the potential benefits of developing a lithium industry in Cornwall will be significant for the county and for the UK as a whole. 'We believe that this is a hugely exciting opportunity to put Cornwall back on the map as a mining centre as well as develop a new industry in the UK.' The lithium market is expected to quadruple to £70 billion by 2020, with demand driven by the dramatic switch towards electric cars across the world. German car giant Volkswagen has said it wants up to 25 per cent of its sales to be electric vehicles by 2025. The potential for the market has seen the price of lithium more than double over the past 18 months and is now worth between 10,000 US dollars (£8,114) and 18,000 US dollars (£14,606) a tonne. Mr Wrathall, 53, who owns Cornish Lithium with his wife, is hoping to raise £5million to start initial exploration tests, with around four or five well drills expected to be set up under the agreement, which covers a large area centred around Camborne, Redruth and St Day in Cornwall. It could lead to 'significant' new jobs in the county and help revive its once enormous mining industry. Mr Wrathall added that extraction of lithium is very clean and environmentally friendly, while also offering the prospect of generating power through geothermal energy. Cornish Lithium has identified the potential for the lithium-loaded brines to be commercially extracted from deep water bearing structures via drill holes and believes that newly developed technology for extracting lithium offers the chance for a viable extraction industry across Cornwall. Digging for traditional metals like tin was once a mainstay of the Cornish economy and holidaymakers can still see ancient, weed-covered pits on windswept moors and dotted along the rugged coastline. Despite China and other major countries spending huge sums on mineral exploration, limited new reserves of lithium have been identified...so Cornwall is tipped to cash in. Cornwall's mining industry dates back to pre-historic times and its abundance of metals has been suggested as one of the reasons why the Roman's invaded Britain. More than a billion pounds worth of tin, copper, zinc and arsenic, were extracted from more than 2,000 operational pits in its industrial revolution heyday. However overseas competition began to kill the industry towards the end of the 20th century and the few remaining pits were closed after the price of tin collapsed in 1985.

History of Cornish Mining - Holman's Test Mine Explored - Poldark Times
 
08:47
Today I have been kindly invited to explore the Holman's test mine. Whilst I show you around the mine I will tell you a bit about the history of the rock drill and the famous Holman's Factory. Holmans was formed in 1801 by John Holman, then in 1881-The brothers John Henry and James Miners Holman, had taken over running the business from their father John. The Holman Brothers Test Mine - was originally developed to showcase and test Holman's rock drills and other equipment. Their earliest rock drills were put to the test here in 1882 and to commercial use in Cornish Tin mines and South Wales Coal mines, it marked the start of an era lasting until the 1990's. However it was a market the Brothers had to break into as rock drills by Doering had been in use in Cornish Mines since 1867. The invention of the first rock drill dates back to a patent in 1849 belonging to W.J Fowle of Boston USA, this was a steam driven drill that was an extension of the piston with rotation added. Early rock drills were waterless and the effect on miners health was catastrophic, silicosis cause through breathing the rock dust into the lungs lead many miners to an early grave, probably to a greater extent than their predecessors, these drills had the nickname of widow makers because drill operators at this time had a life expectancy of 4 years. It was not until the 1920's that water was introduced at the tip of the rock drill making it a lot safer to work with. Development of this type of drill led to a boom in the 1960's with the Holman Silver 303 as a sinker, stopper and air leg machines. The silver 303 was the drill I used while mining at Geevor on 18 Treglowns lode, I used the stoping variety and it was extremely fast at drilling granite and very accurate due to the built in air leg making narrow vein stoping a real art. During an 8 hour shift I would drill between 17 and 21 8 foot holes, then charge and blast them by means of electric detonators. We would still hold our breath whilst collaring the hole due to the dust but as soon as full power was on the dust would instantly die. Holmans Brothers factory was situated in Camborne near Tesco supermarket and at its height employed over 3000 people on 3 different sites, it shows the amount of wealth and work that mines from around the world can bring to an area . Camborne School of Mines now manage the test mine located south of Camborne, Students are able to learn how to drill charge and fire explosive rounds as well as learning how to survey the mine using both traditional and cutting-edge methods, such as using laser 3D scanning equipment. Being a granite mine with no lode makes it a safe environment for the next generation of future Cornish Cornish miners in an area almost certainly to prosper from current metal prices.

The first recorded non-mining industrial activities at Cligga dates from 1893 with the opening of the "British and Colonial Explosives Company factory. The site was chosen both because it was close to a number of mines and because the steeply sloping ground made the site favourable for the production of explosives. British and Colonial was not successful however and was ‘bought out’ by ‘Nobels’. However this was at the beginning of one of the great depressions in Cornish Mining and ‘Nobels’ production stopped in 1909. Nobel had patented his invention of dynamite in 1867. The factory was closed between 1905-1914 but opened again at the start of the First World War.

Breaking News  - Abandoned tin mines in Devon and Cornwall could be reopened
 
07:17
Britain is banking on a series of ancient mines on its southwestern tip to secure a slice of the global electric car revolution.The English county of Cornwall and the surrounding area boast one of the world's largest tin deposits yet their centuries-old mines have lain abandoned since the 1990s when a collapse in prices for the metal made them unviable.Now however a rise in demand for tin, along with other metals that can be used in electric vehicles, electronics and renewable energy, has helped create a global deficit and quadruple prices.British officials are supporting reopening of the mines and seeking investment, leading to a mini-rush of mining companies into the area.In neighbouring Devon one company has already begun operating a mine for tungsten and tin.Adding to the potential, new research shows the extent to which mines also contain deposits of lithium, the so-called metal of the future.The first industrial metals mining in Britain for decades represents the country's best shot at securing a piece of the supply chain for car batteries as well as renewable energy grid connections, officials told Reuters.'We need to ensure the secure supply of the technology metals and critical minerals,' said government lawmaker Pauline Latham, who heads a parliamentary mining group.'This is necessary with China owning the majority of the market and the potential of a global trade war between China and America.'The charge into southwest England is being led by smaller firms, mainly foreign miners with a higher risk appetite.About half a dozen companies are exploring in the area, with the biggest players being Canada's Strongbow Exploration, Australia's New Age Exploration and Wolf Minerals, listed in Sydney and London.In the largest Cornish project planned so far, Strongbow is seeking to extract tin at the 4 km-long South Crofty mines as a result of the improved tin market economics.'The timing is better because global capital markets have a much more receptive attitude towards mining projects,' Strongbow CEO Richard Williams said.'This gives us a good chance of delivering on South Crofty.'The company needs to raise project financing of about £80 million ($110 million).To that end, it plans to seek a secondary listing in London this year.It aims to start production in 2021, but first must pump out water that has accumulated over decades of dereliction.New Age Exploration and its joint venture partner Strategic Minerals said in March they had found tin, tungsten and copper - all useful for electric vehicles - near Plymouth.They have invested about £1.9 million ($2.65 million) in the project, which is at an earlier stage than South Crofty, and are looking to raise financing.Just over the English border in Devon, Wolf Minerals has begun operating a mine for tungsten and tin.One advantage that Britain has, in terms of tin mining and investment, is that it is a stable location compared with big-producing nations such as Democratic Republic of Congo and Myanm AutoNews- Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5665343/Abandoned-tin-mines-Devon-Cornwall-reopened-help-build-electric-cars.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

The trail picks up the route of the old Redruth and Chasewater Railway to Devoran. In the first video we walked from Portreath to Mawla. In Part 2 we walk from Mawla to Poldice Valley. In Part 3, we tried to make sense of the mining buildings remaining in the Poldice Valley. The final video takes us from the Poldice Valley to Devoran.

Music - What's your story? by Dixxy https://soundcloud.com/dixxy-2 Info from Wikipeadia - Geevor Tin Mine, formerly North Levant Mine is a tin mine in the far west of Cornwall, United Kingdom, between the villages of Pendeen and Trewellard. It was operational between 1911 and 1990 during which time it produced about 50,000 tons of black tin. It is now a museum and heritage centre left as a living history of a working tin mine. The museum is an Anchor Point of ERIH, The European Route of Industrial Heritage. Since 2006, the mine has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape.
