They've been "re-opening" various Dolgellau mines for years, and yet minimal activity has taken place to further this. The cynical amongst us would speculate that it may just be publicity for a pump and dump scheme.

No idea why the press insist on blending a story out of two mines owned by different companies. Text describes Clogau and most photos are of Gwynfynydd

Be glad they didn't fill the page up with what somebody nobody has ever heard of said about it on Twitter. Seems to be what passes for journalism on the BBC these days.
