Welsh gold: 'High possibility' of finding more in the hills
Drilling and bulk sampling for gold in new areas of Wales have begun, according to an exploration firm.
Alba Mineral Resources plans to restart mining at Clogau St David's gold mine at Bontddu in Dolgellau, Gwynedd, which closed 30 years ago.
It said analysis of 1,200 soil samples from known mines showed potential to find new gold sources in the county.
Executive chairman George Frangeskides said the firm believed there was a "high possibility" of finding gold.

At least it is making my mate Terry a few bob working as underground supervisor for the duration of the drilling.
Whether it makes anybody else anything has yet to be seen....
