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.

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 - 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.

🔥 Australia's worst mining disaster Dalyston No 20 Shaft Historical site Wonthaggi
 
09:28
Two significant coal mine disasters took place here at the no 20 Shaft in Dalyston, Victoria, Australia 📌 The first occurred during the first year of operation on the 20th February 1931, when 4 men died underground. Then disaster strikes once again, on the 15th February 1937, in which another 13 men died underground this explosion was so powerful ,it blew the cage out of the shaft some 40 ft above the surface, and hit the poppet head, making this the worst mining disaster in Australia's history. The newspaper of the day "the Canberra Times" can be read from the national archives. (Link Below) 📌 http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/2424471 📌 This second disaster, in which Thirteen miners were killed from the explosion, resulted in a successful national campaign to improve conditions for all Australian miners. So at least some good came from the sad deaths of these miners. May they rest in piece. The Dalyston township today, is nothing more than a few assorted stones and cement slabs laying around, and allotment numbers found on maps of the area. LOT 36 Bass Highway Dalyston VIC 3992

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.

Malaysia Colossus Tin Mine Landslide
 
03:09
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.

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.

29:52
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.

Poldark times in a typical Cornish Tin and Copper Mine
 
06:18
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. Poldark I am sure will be as good as before on the BBC but this shows you what it actually would have looked like. Poldark. Ross Poldark returns to England after fighting in the American Revolution. His family and friends thought he was dead. The woman he hoped to marry is now engaged to his cousin. His father is dead, and the property he has inherited has been allowed to deteriorate. It is the late 1700s in Cornwall, England. This is a family drama, but is also about the challenges and conflicts between the rich and the poor. It is a time when fishermen are not catching much fish, tin and copper mines are closing down because prices are too low, but the price of food and rents are high. Ross faces the challenge of making his land productive, caring for the tenants who rely on him, and trying to win back the woman he loved - or finding a reason to live without her. by prolific British novelist Winston Graham

My exploration of a possible old workings site. Went out looking for old site today with Roger, it was covered over nothing visible at all, Roger went right passed the spot and continued to clear brambles, I had a branch of a tree with me to aid beating down the undergrowth, I poked it into a bank and it went straight through and no resistance inside. So we cleared it and I took a preliminary look around. I think it also goes to a tunnel from the top of the stope but needs a worm like figure to test , took some footage on the GoPro for you all to see, looks exciting find.

History of Cornish Mining - Ladderways and the Man Engine

First episode with the second to follow. Preservation of some of these rare mining sights is of great importance to me and my friends. This was Cornish History and should be preserved for the next generations to see. Unfortunately local council have no interest in looking after our historic sites and would rather spend loads on dangerous granite village signs. In this video we have constructed two ladders and send them down the shaft ready for installation in episode two. Ladders are made from 4x2 inch pressure treated timber with steel bars install as rungs, same construction methods as 150 years ago. This mine was refurbished in the early 90's and is now getting due for a full face lift. I also cover a little on the history of ladders and the man engine both important to getting miners underground. 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.
