Tallack Mixed Mine (United Kingdom)


Attepts were made in 1809 to trace the Wheal Towan lodes eastward towards Towan Cross Wheal Tallack was then worked on a small scale.
In 1820 it was with other mines taken up by a London Company. Work on Wheal Tallack re-started when the Wheal Towan adit was driven through the property for a length of over a mile draining the water on many lodes to a depth of 50 fathoms. To prosecute the workings below that depth the company were preparing to erect an engine in 1826. At the same time Wheal Turton were also erecting a engine on a new shaft to intersect the Great Towan copper vein at a depth of 80 fathoms
