Geevor Tin Mine Gallery 5: This series of images looks at the interiors of offices and some of the buildings. I was so fortunate to gain access to these before they were opened to the general public.
Once again Bob Orchard has supplied much of the information.
Enter through the door into the Administration area of the Dry.
Donald Harris was one of the group kept on till the final closure of the mine. The care and maintenance engineering crew consisted of Bob Orchard (Chief Eng.), Donald Harris (Foreman fitter), Roy Angove (Fitter), Don Lockwood (Foreman Electrician) but he left for a more secure job, Steve Warren (Electrician).
There were also John France, Maurice Trembath, David Trembath, Collin Williams & Eddie Harris as winder drivers for the Victory, Treweeks, head of decline & 19 level winders. These men when not driving assisted the care and maintenance team.
Others were Eric Gale (Shaft master), Norman Barnicoat (Assistant shaft man), Robin Boon (Surveyor), Collin Denis (Accountant), Pam Hocking(Office administrator), Kevin Clark (Mine Manager from Geevor PLC head office).
All of these people were finally laid off in Aug/Sept 1991, except for Pam Hocking, Bob Orchard & Kevin Clark. I (Bob Orchard) finally finished on 18/5/92. Some of these later returned as Geevor volunteers.
