The Tamar Area, this is one of the mining districts I have not spent a huge amount of time around. However over the next coming months the content will grow as my knowledge of the area increases.
The images on this page are of the extensive remains of Devon Great Consols Mine which worked from 1844-1901. During this time the mine produced a total of 763,573 tons of Copper and 71,770 tons of Arsenic. The remains on site belong to the Arsenic Refining works. The images were taken in the late 1990’s, since then the site has been stabilised and the most contaminated areas sealed off.
