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.

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."

Landslide occur at Seaside Malaysia on 1993 year,this video was taken on the spot at that time.That year, They received a call by the owner of a tin mine (the element tin, not tin as in cans...). He said that his mine, which had been running for a few decades, was about to collapse. They rushed to the scene with a video camera and waited for a few hours. Finally, they took this valuable footage. Sea water keep coming in. Although the footage lasted only a few minutes, it is horribly exciting enough.

Levant (The Edge of the World) composed 2013 This is the score, narration (taken from a transcript of an interview with a miner eye-witness from the accident in 1919) and video about Levant mine in Cornwall, UK. The rhythm section is made up almost entirely of sound samples taken from the mine itself in 2013. The choral sections are in Cornish and the poetry is a mixture of original work and the poem written to raise money following the disaster of 1919. The piece was inspired by the present site and the history surrounding the mine. The saxophone solos were improvised around a theme created by rubbing a wax crayon on manuscript paper placed on the stone bath used by the miners. New (and final) version - 27th October 2013 Miner's account narrated by Sam Moulton Poetic Cornishman: Terry Whetter Saxophone: Sarah Bolter - www.sarahbolter.co.uk Artwork: Mandy Anson Original poetry: Kate Aranda Nye Photography and video: Heather Nye Thank you to all who contributed to both film and audio track.

The antiquarian Sabine Baring-Gould relates a Cornish story about the honourable and wealthy disciple of Jesus Christ (the one who ultimately laid Christs body in his own tomb) "that Joseph of Arimathea came in a boat to Cornwall, and brought the Child Jesus with him, and the latter taught him how to extract the tin" ('A Book Of Cornwall', 1899, p.57) This video tells us that Cornwall was the tin centre of the ancient world

A so-called "rock burst" reportedly killed two miners and trapped 31 others underground in a coal mine in the Russian Komi Republic on Thursday. The local Emergencies Ministry reported that 110 people were down the shaft at the time of the incident and 79 were brought to the surface, four of whom were injured. The incident occurred when the miners were working 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) below the surface of the remote "Northern" mine in Vorkuta, about 2,000 kilometres (1240 miles) north east of Moscow. Emergency teams established contact with those stranded underground and after gas concentration levels were measured, began the operation in the mine.

We drop a 30ft shaft lined with a old iron air receiver tank, we assume it was dropped in there to protect the shallow shaft from collapsing into the mine. The workings are old and narrow, a lot of crawling about on hands and knee's, so we will return one day better equipped to explore more of this mine.

Wheal Frances is a village in Cornwall, England, UK. It is located in the civil parish of Perranzabuloe. The village was noted for the South Wheal Frances Mine of which many ruins remain. Mining began in the local area in the early 1720s. After Lady Frances Bassett, the mineral Lord, offered a new lease on the land in 1834 it resumed production and experiences a golden period for ore production was the 1850s. By the early 20th century, several thousand men, women and children worked in the mine. A 75-inch cylinder pumping engine house with a was built at Marriott's shaft in 1847 and pumped water from Pascoe's shaft as well as Marriott's. In 1857 a 24-inch winder was installed in close proximity. Between 1896 and 1899 a major refurbishment of the shaft was undertaken, enabling mining to take places as far down as 6,000 feet. Due to a slump in tin prices during World War I it ceased operations in 1918. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheal_Frances It is documented that 14 people died here in mining accidents. There was probably a lot more but there is definitly 14 documented deaths that I have managed to find online at cmhrc... http://www.cmhrc.co.uk/site/disasters/index.html In this video I explore the ruins of the old mining site and take some video clips in 1080 HD. I also do some EVP work and take some full spectrum photos because ghosts are said to be seen a lot better in this spectrum of light due to the so called ectoplasmic residue that they are said to be made up of. This is part 1 of the daytime investigation video and shows me attending the mine site at Wheal Frances for the very first time and walking around it taking photos and filming. Part 2 will be coming soon and it will have more videos and photos. I will be returning here again very soon to do a night time investigation with my night vision camera, digitial recorder, spirit box and k2 meter to try and capture any evidence.

Jubilee Colliery is where I am in this video, its an abandoned coal mine situated in the middle of Crompton and Newhey which are sub counties of Rochdale, Manchester. Originally opened in 1845 all’s that remains now is an abyss of ruins. The site is now a nature reserve where you can go and wonder around the industrial revolutions remaining remnants. Exploring a disused mine was so eye opening to what people used to have to do just to get by. As I said its now a nature reserve and what a beautiful place it is, I actually found this old mine by accident on my way home from Rochdale. I was on the tram home and I seen it through the window and wanted to investigate further so I did and that’s what this video is all about the history of this site and the history of Lancashire Mining. I like to mix History, Abandoned Places and Urbexing but everyone’s different I hope you enjoy the video as it was an astounding Lancashire colliery.

Calstock is a civil parish and a large village in south east Cornwall, England, United Kingdom, on the border with Devon. The village is situated on the River Tamar Mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 (most of the land belonged to a brother of William the Conqueror), the Parish has had a long and chequered history. For much of the time, its prosperity was linked to agriculture, mining and quarrying and its location on the banks of the River Tamar. The building of the railway, and its spectacular arched bridge, played a part in the early 20th Century. There is evidence of human settlement in Calstock from Roman, or pre-Roman times, settlers attracted by the rich source of minerals, such as tin, in the area. A Roman fort, only the third known in Cornwall, was discovered next to the church in 2008.Calstock Roman Fort Dig 2011 here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8maJp8i2kM In Saxon times Calstock was in the Kingdom of Cornwall, which resisted the spread of Wessex from the east. In 838 CE Wessex had spread as far as the Tamar, and a battle for independence was fought near Calstock Mining was important in Calstock from Mediaeval times, with the Duchy mining silver. The industry was booming in the late 19th century, and the discovery of copper, coupled with nearby granite quarrying, made Calstock a busy port. The rapid population boom due to the growth of industry led, in 1849, to an outbreak of cholera. The industry declined in the early 20th century due to foreign competition, and now only the ruined pump houses that dot the landscape remain.In the 1970's it was reported that a road leading to Calstock is said to be haunted by a group of miners wearing old fashioned outfits and carrying candles are often seen . Boot Inn in Calstock has reported a a number of strange events that have took place at the pub, whose building dates back to 1662. Among the events taking place were an unexplained loud bang's, the sound of glass bottles being banged together and lights mysteriously being turned on plus the feeling of being touched or poked in the back. One night the landlord went to shut the door but was unable to as he found ’someone’ pushing against it. The church St Andrew's Church, Calstock is said to have been consecrated about 1290. Nothing obvious remains of this period, but the pillars and arches to the north of the centre aisle of the present building are early 14th century. About 1420 the south aisle was added, and the whole church re-roofed. Gravestones can be found which record deaths from mining and other industrial accidents. Danescombe Valley Mine Buildings is in the civil parish of Calstock in the hamlet named Albaston. A courageous conversion has made the engine house of a former mine a lovely and interesting Landmark. Standing by a stream in a steep wooded valley leading down to the Tamar, the mine worked on and off from 1822 to 1900.here https://www.landmarktrust.org.uk/search-and-book/properties/danescombe-mine-6259 LOTS MORE PHOTOS OF DANESCOMBE MINE HERE https://hiveminer.com/Tags/danescombe%2Cmine https://www.geograph.org.uk/ http://www.tavistock-today.co.uk/article.cfm?id=1641&headline=Is%20anybody%20out%20there?§ionIs=news&searchyear=2008 Music ~Corridor~Purple Planet Music

With the success of the Poldark series by the BBC, I try and give you an insight to what it was really like underground for mine workers 200 years ago to almost modern times. West Wheal Chiverton lies one and a half miles southeast of Perranzabuloe roughly midway between Callestick and Marazanvose in the Perranzabuloe Mining District of Mid Cornwall. A fine engine house and other remains are located on the western flank of woodland near Polvenna, about half a mile southwest of Zelah . The mine worked three major lodes: North Lode (also known as Elizabeth Lode), Middle Lode and South Lode (also known as Williams' Lode) they were worked from Batter's (New Engine) Shaft, Glubb Shaft, Burgess Shaft, Hawke's Shaft (also known as Hock Shaft) and Susanna Shaft. It shares its southern boundary with Mineral Bottom Mine. West Wheal Chiverton was mainly a lead mine producing over 45,000 tons of high grade lead in its lifetime. The mine also raised well over one million ounces of silver in the second half of the nineteenth century. Its nearest neighbours were Chiverton Mine, a short distance to the northeast, Grid Ref. SW797512, Great Chiverton Consols just over one and a half miles to the east (SW820512) and Lambriggan Mine two miles to the west at Grid reference SW760511.

Levant Mine is a restored mine on the Tin Coast near Pendeen in Cornwall. The mine was used in the original series of Poldark and has also been used in the new series as Tressiders Rolling Mill. Like at Botallack Mine just down the coast, the mine workings at Levant stretched out for a mile under the sea. The Levant Mining Company was formed in 1820 but a mine was here as early as 1748. Just 1836, Levant Mine employed 320 men, 44 women and 186 children. Within the first twenty years, the mine made over £170,000 from Copper. In 1857 a man engine was installed which can still be seen. This carried the men and children down the shaft. In 1919, one of Cornwall's worst mining disasters took place at the mine when a link between the rod and the engine on the man engine snapped. 31 people died. The mine closed for good by 1930 and, ever since the disaster, the mine had experienced a decline. In more recent times, the National Trust have been criticised for being disrespectful for putting "ugly" looking fencing up and by making the car park a Pay and Display. On Facebook, a group called 'PAY AND DISPLAY AT LEVANT - NO THANKS' has been started which campaigns to make the car park free again, as well as to remove the unnecessary fencing. While the group remains focusing on Levant, they also want free parking across the Tin Coast as another mining accident happened at Wheal Owles, just down the coast from Levant Mine.

Stains of Toil (Ely Miners Memorial) They came from Ljubljana, sailed from Trieste From Finland and Cornwall, then they came west. They heard of the place they all looked for Where under the forest hid rich iron one. They went to the captain and in their own way They hired on quickly -- started that day. They crowded in cages and went underground And built a future for family and town. CHORUS Those were the miners who left behind The stains of toil from the ore they mined Their work, their aches, chills and pain Built our city and the lives we gained. They drilled and then blasted raises and drifts And nights merged with days on rotating shifts They worked on contract and earned their pay Respecting the bosses but having their say. They built our houses and drank in saloons And boisterously sang their old country tunes And loved their families and gave us more Than eighty-eight years of hematite ore. CHORUS The underground mines they hummed with pride Deeper they dug and ever more wide They built our schools -- won a war Scraping and tugging the blue iron ore. The mines are still -- yet ore remains. We must remember our fortune and gains. Miners who came here and sweated and died Built our foundation and gave us our pride. A toast to the miners who left behind The stains of toil from the ore they mined.

The Carbis Bay Crew explore South Terras Uranium Mine in June 2016. Please do not try this at home! Please be aware that the site is on private property and we had full prior permission to access the site, go underground and fly the drone. Please do not attempt to recreate any of what you have seen in this video or access the site without permission. We monitor our radiation exposure as we venture underground, our exposure at the site was calculated into our annual permissible dose. Our total exposure was approximately 250 MicroSievert in the 3 hours on site, this is one quarter of our annual permissible dose of 1 MilliSievert. We were all thoroughly decontaminated that evening and levels were perfectly normal by the following morning. All drone flying was legal and obeyed all requirements for heights, distances and other considerations.

Wheal Frances is a village in Cornwall, England, UK. It is located in the civil parish of Perranzabuloe. The village was noted for the South Wheal Frances Mine of which many ruins remain. Mining began in the local area in the early 1720s. After Lady Frances Bassett, the mineral Lord, offered a new lease on the land in 1834 it resumed production and experiences a golden period for ore production was the 1850s. By the early 20th century, several thousand men, women and children worked in the mine. A 75-inch cylinder pumping engine house with a was built at Marriott's shaft in 1847 and pumped water from Pascoe's shaft as well as Marriott's. In 1857 a 24-inch winder was installed in close proximity. Between 1896 and 1899 a major refurbishment of the shaft was undertaken, enabling mining to take places as far down as 6,000 feet. Due to a slump in tin prices during World War I it ceased operations in 1918. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheal_Frances It is documented that 14 people died here in mining accidents. There was probably a lot more but there is definitly 14 documented deaths that I have managed to find online at cmhrc... http://www.cmhrc.co.uk/site/disasters/index.html In this video I explore the ruins of the old mining site and take some video clips in 1080 HD. I also do some EVP work and take some full spectrum photos because ghosts are said to be seen a lot better in this spectrum of light due to the so called ectoplasmic residue that they are said to be made up of. This is part 1 of the daytime investigation video and shows me attending the mine site at Wheal Frances for the very first time and walking around it taking photos and filming. Part 2 will be coming soon and it will have more videos and photos. I will be returning here again very soon to do a night time investigation with my night vision camera, digitial recorder, spirit box and k2 meter to try and capture any evidence. THIS IS PART II OF MY DAYTIME INVESTIGATION

Dan and I went exploring out the coast weeks ago when the weather was nice. It was a high tide climb out to the Gout Cave for you guys. Beautiful day too, as you will see! **We have a great video coming next! Did a 'massive' mine and sea cave explore last weekend for you guys. Trailer is at the end. Will be live by the end of the week! Stay tuned.

State media reported Thursday, at least 19 people died in a coal mine accident in northern China's coal belt of Shanxi. The official Xinhua news agency said preliminary investigations have found that a large portion of the roof collapsed. The collapse kicked up a dust storm within the cavern. According to reports, 129 people were working in the mine. 110 managed to escape. Quoted by AFP last year, a senior manager said that the company's bosses were ramping up production to counter a drop in coal prices. Cranking up production with limited resources can lead to serious accidents and oversights in processes. Shanxi has experienced major coal mine accidents in both 2013 and 2010. http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/QnLw4P5EYco/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

In the mining sector, decreased visibility caused by smoke, dust, fog, and snow is a major issue that impedes mine and rescue operations and can endanger workers. In an accident situation, mine rescue workers must move quickly. Not many visibility enhancement systems that facilitate quick responses are currently available, and they are effective only in limited circumstances. INO has developed VISI+, a vision system for vehicles that is more versatile than the systems currently used in the mining sector. The system improves visibility in a variety of conditions, such as blizzards on ice roads, fog in open-pit mines, and rescue operations in smoky galleries. Not only is it durable, VISI+ is also easy to install and maintain. INO's supervision of software development and equipment integration, as well as the company's close collaboration with its partners in the mining sector, is the key to this project's success. INO's competitive edge lies in its wide variety of expertise, technology, and intellectual property, enabling it to innovate and excel.

A short video of a rare occurrence - a model Cornish pumping engine working on live steam. The model is part of the Kew Bridge museum collections and was demonstrated at Kew Bridge Festival of Models in 2006. The model was operated fully condensing and pumping water, and ran continuously on both days of the show. The model is currently displayed as a static exhibit at the museum. The video was shot on a Canon Ixus V stills camera, which unfortunately had very limited video capability.

On August 16th 2010 a Faro Photon 120 was used to capture part of the tin mine workings at Wheal Coates, Cornwall, UK. Towanroath Pumping Engine House (1872) was used to pump water from its associated shaft, which was incorporated into a naturally occurring sea cave. The field work - conducted by Adam P. Spring, Caradoc Peters and James Needham (FARO UK) - was discussed in a Geoinformatics article. Spring, A. P., Peters, C. and Barton, J. (2010) “A Re-evaluation of Cornwall’s Mining World Heritage Site,” GeoInformatics (8): 28-30: http://fluidbook.webtraders.nl/geoinformatics/08-2010/#0 Accessed 22nd March 2015.

4th film from the Blue mine. In this film we breakthrough into workings that have not seen anyone since around 1850. This film will give you some idea of how miners in Poldark times would have worked as we descend a typical man way laddered shaft.
