A large number (2,745) of South West mines have been added to the database today greatly increasing the number of mines on the site from this area of the country.

Grateful thanks go to Roy Fellows and Roy Morton from whom the data originated.

Slightly off-topic, but how many mines are in the database overall?

Great stuff by Roy and Roy. A small question. I uploaded a photo (nothing brilliant) to Carnkie Mine, I found the mine by accident because it is near Wheal Basset. Well it would be, they are in the same place But I couldn't find it on the south west data base. It must be somewhere otherwise presumably it wouldn't figure at all. I tried to upload a document but failed. Scripting error?

Unforunately yes, I'll have a look at this also over the next couple of days. Sorry about that.
