The pipeline must have been a certain depth underground to take advantage of mineral rights, 6ft rings a bell.
I am surprised a "certain company" bought the mineral rights, I would have thought they had in the first place or for a long time ! I believe there is also a situation where someone may own the mineral rights but will let you mine or work at depth for an annual fee/rent?

In Derbyshire you can still "nick" a lead mine, although it has not been done recently, I think the last time was Ron Amner nicking Goodluck back in the 1960's.
You have to follow all the rules and pay tithes to all the relevant bodies, look up Edward Manlove, he listed all the rules in his rhyme and as far as I am aware they have not been superceded. Smartass

I daresay there is a member of the Barmote Court active on this site. Glare


Manlove's poem was never the actual customary law, only a handy summary, and some of the things in that have fallen by the wayside. The law as it stands is in the 1851 and 1852 acts, but it varies from liberty to liberty and some liberties aren't covered by the acts and as a result are a legal grey area as to whether the customs have validity or not. As for a member of the Barmote court being active on this site, not to the best of my knowledge, and the last formal nicking ceremony I'm aware of was at Gorseydale in 1988 as part of the Quo Warranto celebrations - see photos in Willies and Parker.

I did contemplate nicking a vein myself at one point, but that effectively makes the mine a working one with all the attendant duties of MASHAM and the Inspectorate. It's not worth the hassle...

wow what a fantastic wealth of information from you guys and girls....blown away...

it doesnt matter what type of mine it is because it is simply going to be used for storage. My friend has a few quid and trusts my expert opinion....

I am an expert on earth changes, and it is my belief that next year, the north and south poles are going to flip. When they do, enough EMP is going to be created to fry everything electric on earth, including the national grid, which would take at least 2 years to get back up and running......it is also my expert opinion that if i go to public with my work, i will be thrown under a bus, as the powers that be are busy running up all their debts knowing they wont have to pay any of them back.....and of course, they wouldnt want people to stop working to keep their ponzi scheme afloat would they?

so people, if any electricians out there, i suggest they google 'free energy' or 'zero point energy', any mechanics out there, i suggest they build a water powered car or two (like the one that completed the indy 500 in 1955), and if any of you have been in an old mine and thought 'hey what a great space for something', and can provide me with some details like name, NGR, owner even, i would very much appreciate it.

my friend wants to buy a mine to store his computer hard drives and magnetic media in, simple as that....... though i can assure you that when the time comes, i will be sat in there too....not that the polar shift will cause any long term health issues, but all we are is electricity, and the pole shift will screw everyone up for months....

Closer to the time, i can predict this event to a day or two, as it stands i got March to August next year.

thanks in anticipation.....

I suggest he looks into treacle mines.


He'll find evidence of just such a mine at Dale Abbey, Derbyshire. The Dale Abbey No.2 drift mine, owned by the Stanton Ironworks Company (later Stanton and Staveley) was known as the 'Treacle Mine' as the coal extracted from the Kilburn seam at that mine was of such a constituency that when burned it ran like treacle between the bars of the iron furnaces at Stanton Ironworks and was therefore unsuitable for ironmaking. The pit closed in the 1920's.

I refer you to my friend Iclok, who has explored this site in some depth, and who I believe may have posted some photo's herein.


engine house? does that mean you would need a lift?

As an "expert" then you must be aware of the view of the BGS? This is worth reading and at complete variance with your "belief"?

Or are you just having a joke with the very intelligent people on this forum? Guns

Mr Funksalug.

Are you the same person who wants to produce child prodogies because you reckon yourself to be slim and intelligent??? Who also is on spywareforums and into Gaia healing????


Enjoy our forum for its mining knowledge.

To generate a high EMP (to effect computer stuff) requires an almost instantainious function ie: a very short rise time in the order of micro or nano seconds, lightening discharge for example.
Now so far as electrical transmision systems go an incoming solar CME, high density solar wind etc or X Flare is a different matter, we are approaching the current sunspot maxima in the current 11 year cycle (check out spaceweather.com) this can and indeed in the past effect power transmission lines etc as can an unusual high X Flare radiation events, an X Flare will normally cause partial or complete radio transmission blackout in certain parts of the radio spectrum ie: it effects electromagnetic propagation, an incoming CME also affects such propagation sometimes initially hampering it but then later on in the cycle considerably enhancing it.

Underground you are not likely to escape any magnetic anomolies.
I am no expert so I stand to be corrected.

I don't see how being undergound will protect against induced currents in electrical circuitry in the event of a polar flip - the earth's magnetic field has pretty much the same effect in the voids of a mine as it does on the surface, so if the field does move and induce current in copper wires while doing so, how will being in a mine help?

As for the uses we've thought about for old mines while underground, we generally think "this would be a great place to take a photo".

And if the flip happens over several generations, I can't help wondering how small the induced currents might actually be.

Laugh Hahahaha....."terrain to grid, get rid....". Big Grin

I was made to chant that over and over to myself in case I ever forgot....it could be a very expensive mistake! So when Grid and Mag align, for one precious moment we can put our calculators away! Thumbs Up

Because it's a challenge.....it's a challenge for me and it's a challenge for the coracle. But mainly because it's been done before....

Definition of an expert:

1 of 2:

1) An ex is a has been and a spurt never comes to much.

2) An expert is one who knows more and more about less and less until he knows all there is to know about absolutely f**k all.

I dare say there are more.

"There are those that know, those that don't know, and those that don't know that they don't know"

A worthwhile study, make sure you can grasp the concept of real and imaginary numbers, j the opperator, +j, -j, phasors etc. as when you come to study reactive values in both inductive and capacitive circuits or a combination thereof it will stand you in good stead for sure.

It's amazing how original posts develop, nevertheless I find it interesting insofar that the means of mass communication and info exchange that we are all now used to is very relativly recent, we have not suffered from any mega events (earth directed) from solar activity since the formation and and uptake of the tinterweb, mass data storage etc. These mega solar events do happen and there is evidence to suggest that these have happened in the past in gigantic proportions, but in the past all mankind had to worry about was his plough and cartwheels, a gigantic earth directed solar event will happen for sure, it's inevitable, will we and our technologies be prepared for it....who knows, the current mars space probe must have been as it must have traversed some rough stuff along its long journey to Mars.
All very interesting.

I will only start to worry when Mr funksalug gets research grants, and then it will only be about the money.

I thought it was this year the earth was supposed to end?
Has it been postponed or something?

An ex is a has been and a spurt is a drip under pressure!
