Description

Allen Buckley, A5, Sb, 52pp

Miners hunted for valuable metallic ores in the Chacewater area for more than 500 years.

They worked beneath Killifreth Woods, Chacewater Bal and Creegbrawse Downs.

Killifreth was the great survivor of these mines, and carried on producing copper, tin and arsenic long after most of the others had closed.

Killifreth Mine And Early Mining At Chacewater examines the history of the site and its role alongside the likes of Wheal Busy, Poldice United and Consolidated Mines.

quote from Allen ""I started it more than 20 years ago when Carrick District Council asked me to do some research on Killifreth. It was only when I finished my book on Dolcoath (a very large book), that I was able to finish this one.

"There's a lot of history in it, but there is a lot about the characters. There's a lot of humour and lots of anecdotes from the people who worked there"
