In the mid-nineteenth century, Cornwall led the world in the art and science of mining for metals. The Camborne-Redruth district contains some of the most intensively mined ground anywhere in the world. This book charts the history of the mines of Tolgus Downs, Pool and Roskear-Roscroggan. It also raises the question of where useful deposits may yet remain unmined.
