Cornwall Consultants Ltd is looking forward to going on an amazing virtual underground tour of some of the South West’s biggest historic metal mines, courtesy of Dr Keith Russ.
Keith is the Technical Service Engineer at Western United Mines in Pool where his role includes survey control and updating working plans and sections of the former South Crofty Mine. Over the past few years Keith has developed a 3D computer model of the whole of the Camborne-Redruth mining district as well as some of the major former metal mines throughout Cornwall and Devon. This gives a fascinating insight into the extent of old mine workings beneath built-up areas and clearly demonstrates why a Mining Search is required whether you are buying or building a new home.
Keith is presenting a narrated virtual fly-through of the abandoned workings at Camborne School of Mines in Penryn on 25th June at 7pm. The presentation is open to the public and more information can be found here.
