Hi, Mike, if I think this is the book you're looking for , which I believe it is, spiral bound? unfortunately my dad passed away last year. This is his daughter, Lynn. He would be pleased to know people are still looking for enquiring after it. He loved doing the book and getting it out to people. If I can be of further help please get in touch IP: 81.145.183.231

If you have a spare copy if Lynn can't supply new ones would you be willing to sell your spare?

Hi all, I am going to my mother's Sunday to check what we have either an original copy or disc which may help and we could perhaps then sell on so someone could use as needed. I'll let you know what I find on this

Hi, as of tomorrow, the book and disc is going to a fellow enthusiast on this site, Pete Harrison. The full 5800 there is only the master copy and disc. Pete said he'll reproduce it under dads name so if you want to get in touch or if you don't know details from here (not sure how the site works) then let me know or I'll tell him tomorrow when I meet him and handover the things

thanks for enquiring, dad would be chuffed to know people still ask after it

That's a very fair charge and wish you success with it, I will check old emails and refer them to you. I will put it on the Mining History forum too and moorebooks facebook page

So true I have done the same thing with the Cwmorthen and Rhosydd reprints , however, it does need to be self financing .

I have emailed to the three customers who requested information

cheers
