Discover the extraordinary...Cornwall's mining heritage.

Mining has taken place in Cornwall for over four thousand years, with evidence of operations taking place as early as 2,150 BC. Until the early 20th century, Cornwall was easily one of the most important areas for mining in all of Europe. Its rich veins of tin, copper, lead, zinc, silver and arsenic have provided materials for civilisations both ancient and current throughout the continent, and the advances made within the industry in Cornwall have spread across the world, improving life and industry as far away as China, Australia and South America.
