Is anyone in contact with Kelvin Davies of Aberystwyth? He's a local chap who got into mine exploration around 1990 and did a geology degree at the university around the mid 1990s. His uncle was Ivor Richards, a well-known local mine explorer in the late 1980s and in the 1990s. Kelvin had a special interest in Gwaithgoch Mine, next to Grogwynion Mine. All the contact details I have for Kelvin have become out of date. The last address I had for him was in the Penparciau / South Gate area.

Please pm me if you can help at all. Many thanks!
