I'm stuck trying to find information about a pub in which the committee of the Great County Adit are said to have met. Hamilton Jenkin mentions "the St Helena public house at Consols" (Great Consolidated Mines Gwennap}
Now, there is a pub marked on the 6" OS maps as The Miners Arms, and this is recorded in trade directories of the late 19th century.
With this pub falling within the bounds of the mine, it would seem fair to assume that it may have previously been known as the St Helena, or, was it maybe a 'Kiddlywink' on the mine itself?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Further to this query, a friend mentioned that St Helena is the patron saint of new discoveries. An apt name for a pub on what was then proving to be a very rich copper mine.
