Operated: 1833-1896 as Carn Brea, merged with Tincroft in 1896.
Sett closed by 1920.
Output: 237,493T Copper, 29,600T Tin, 4,140T Arsenic

As can be seen the mine not only produced copper, it also produced vast quantities of tin and arsenic in its latter days as part of carn Brea and Tincroft.

Rems: Stamps engine house from 1850's and its stepped stack, and some old burrows are all that remains of this once rich and extensive mine.
