This page; Cornish Mining Documents, shows scans of a few documents I have picked up over the years from various sources. Paperwork like this is an interesting historical record, of particular interest is the Dolcoath Mine Report.
The paperwork is from Josiah Thomas who was the Dolcoath Mine Captain from 1867 to 1895. He first introduced compressed air drilling machines to the mine in 1876, along with Californian Stamps in 1892.
He was appointed managing director of the mine in 1895 and died in October 1901.
The Dolcoath Mine Report, this was issued in 1881.
A Dolcoath Mine Share Certificate, this is dated 1911, issued to fund the final years of the mine.
A share certificate from The St Ives Consolidated Mines. Dated 1911, this was an issue to fund an amalgamation of several local mines in 1907. This was largely unsuccessful and was abandoned in 1915.
A pay sheet from Castle-an-Dinas Mine dated from 1933, the mine worked from 1916 to 1957.
A letter dated 1917 from Tincroft Mines, referring to a sale of Arsenic.
A letter from East Pool and Agar Mine, also referring to a sale of Arsenic.
