Taken from a 1950's OS which was redrawn for quarry purposes. I have amended it to show the 8 balance names more legibly and added a bit of colour. Note that SInc Bach seems disconnecetd compared to the others. This was because it's function had been replaced by the incline from Red Lion down to Sinc Bach, just below the Princess May Balance.

(Tourist Guides / Public / 16041Kb)

A description of Slate Mining written originally for Gloddfa Ganol, and the Oakeley Quarries, but much of which could equally apply to most of the Ffestiniog Slate Quarries.

Candles to Caplamps was originally written in 1975-76 and slightly revised in 1980, regrettably we never got round to a third revision, though both that and a new Gloddfa Ganol Guidebook were planned. Some of the historical content is slightly inaccurate due to research of much greater depth between then and now. Much of the content was arrived at after discussion with various quarrymen in the Queen's and Commercial hotels in Blaenau - who were insistent that I got it right!

This is the original guidebook which was written for Gloddfa Ganol (not by me!) and which we somehow never got round to re-writing, instead I wrote "Candles to Caplamps" and "Walk into the Slate Mountain" and alsways intended to produce a similar thing for the Floor 11 landrover Safari, complete with Certificate to be signed by the guide (sighs!).

History of discovery of Sungun, a world-class porphyry copper deposit, NW Iran  Hashem ETMINAN History of discovery of Sungun, a world-class porphyry copper deposit, NW Iran Hashem ETMINAN
(Technical Documents / Public / 25Kb)

Significant porphyry-copper style mineralisation at Sungun was discovered by the author in 1977. This was based on field and laboratory studies of favourable foot prints, geological setting and the presence of distal porphyry-copper mineralisation in Iran. In 1988 a major exploration program was launched by National Iranian Copper Industries (NICICO) and results of subsequent feasibility studies carried out between1997 and 1999 vindicated author’s exploration model.
The estimated reserves at Sungun are around 1billion and 700 million tonnes with proven reserves of about one billion tonnes at a grade of 0.62% copper.
The Cenozoic volcanic belt which resulted from the subduction and subsequent continental collision, extends from Turkey to Pakistan. It hosts world-class porphyry copper deposits in Iran (Sarcheshmeh and Sungun) and Pakistan (Reko Diq , and Saindak).
Skarn-type mineralisation at the Sungun deposit had been mined since ancient times. The mining at this low-grade deposit was abandoned in early seventies. Extensive hydrothermal alteration zones around Sungun are associated with porphyritic granodioritic to monzonitic rocks. The exploration model was based on favourable structural features (such as intersection of several major fault systems), presence of hydrothermal breccia, and stockwork-style copper and molybdenum mineralisation. Extensive potassic, phylic, argillic alteration surrounded by a regional propylitic alteration constitute a distal alteration footprint of mineralisation. Fluid inclusion studies of veins and alteration minerals provided additional constraints for discovering world-class mineralisation at Sugun.

Rio Tinto estuary (Spain): 5000 years of pollution Rio Tinto estuary (Spain): 5000 years of pollution
(General Interest / Public / 333Kb)

The Rio Tinto system in the province of Huelva, south- western Spain, has great historical significance as well as environmental interest. It is one of the most polluted flu- vial-estuarine systems in the world and most likely has been so for thousands of years. It is in the headwaters of this river that mining supporting the Copper Age and Bronze Age took place. The estuary, at the town of Palos de la Frontera, was the origin of Columbus’ expedition in 1492 and for subsequent trips. Most recently, the city of Huelva has become the site of one of the most polluted industrial areas of the world. It is possible, however, that the pollution of the system began thousands of years ago with the original mining of the massive sulfide deposits near the headwaters of the Rio Tinto.
This investigation was conducted in order to answer the following questions:
1. What is the level and distribution of metals and other
important pollutants in the sediments of the system?
2. What is the influence, if any, of tidal transport of the
pollutants being discharged in and near the industrial
complex at Huelva?
3. What is the chronology associated with the pollutants
and to what extent, if any, have they been incorpo- rated into the sediments that have accumulated in the estuary?

Rio Tinto estuary (Spain): 5000 years of pollution Rio Tinto estuary (Spain): 5000 years of pollution
(General Interest / Public / 333Kb)

Mining of massive sulfide deposits in southwestern Spain extending back to the Copper and Bronze Ages has resulted in the pollution of the Rio Tinto fluvial-estuarine complex, the site of Columbus’ departure for the New World in 1492. Additional sources of potential pollution include the large industrial complex at Huelva near the lower portion of the estuary. Extensive analysis of surface sediment samples and cores has established that there are no geographic trends in the distribu- tion of the pollutants, which include Cu, Fe, Pb, Zn, Ti, Ba, Cr, V and Co. These data have, however, de- monstrated that tidal flux within the estuary carries phosphorus and perhaps other elements from the industrial complex at Huelva to the tidal limit of the system, several kilometers upstream from the discharge site. Radiometric analysis of short cores shows that sedimentation rates over at least the past couple of centuries have been about 0.3 cm/ year. These data and that from a single deep core demonstrate that the estuary was polluted from mining activity long before the large-scale opera- tions began in the late nineteenth century.

The Sungun porphyry copper –molybdenum deposit was discovered and introduced for the first time by Hashem Etminan, expert of Geological Survey of Iran in 1977.

The Cost Book: Mining Journal 1853 The Cost Book: Mining Journal 1853
(General Interest / Public / 9205Kb)

The Cost Book Company was an entity formed under Stannary Law in the counties of Cornwall and Devon. Outside of these counties a company could only be formed by Royal Letters Patent or by act of parliament prior to the Joint Stock Companies Act of 1844.
However, the cost book principle being a principle of internal management and accounting etc was universal throughout the 19th Century, even after the Limited Liability Act of 1855. This act meant that it was now easier to form a company; however its shareholders did not enjoy limited liability, as they were to find out.
Later in 1855 the Limited Liability Act rectified this, and then in 1856 a new Joint Stock Companies Act merged the 2 separate pieces of legislation.
It is important for the mining historian to bear in mind that the cost book principle did not a cost book company make!
This pdf file is created from extracts taken from the Mining Journal as a supplement to the 1853 volume 23, and was written prior to the 1855 act as there had been a lot of argument back and forth on the subject of cost book v limited liability. Letters in the Mining Journal had been a regular feature.

This was an extraordinary meeting called by Roy Fellows to discuss possible ways forward at the Cwmystwyth Mines. The platforms for discussion were a document prepared by the Trust and a proposal by Barratt Associates for a Hydro Scheme that would include some partial restoration of original mining features. The initiative was therefore provisionally supported by Cambrian Mines Trust, but subject to general input from stakeholders and interested parties once BAs proposals are finalised.

This was prepared by Roy Fellows as a platform for discussion with Barratt Associates in August 2013. At this time (early September) the Cambrian Mines Trust has put forward our vision of how such a scheme could be acceptable to the Trust and await BAs proposals. When this happens input from other stakholders and interested parties will be invited before the Trust makes any final decision. As the site is a SAM and SSSI there will need to be authority approval.

Twelve years later.
RioTinto made a stunning, yet almost un-reported, admission of negligence and liability in poisoning hundreds of people with its Capper Pass tin smelter near the English City of Hull. In June, the company began a process of settlement that according to the Yorkshire Post, a local paper, could open the compensation floodgates for former workers and families who claim their health was blighted by exposure to noxious chemicals.
