King Edward Mine Open Day 2008

King Edward Mine open day Troon Cornwall.

King Edward Mine is the oldest Mine site left in Cornwall. All the buildings are Listed Grade 11 - meaning they are of National Importance. Much of the machinery is rare and is amongst the
last of its kind in the world.

The open day included seeing the mine in operation.


The Acme Round Frame, probably the only working example in Europe - more than 100 years old and still capable of separating cassiterite from the sand waste.

NB. Cassiterite is tin dioxide, SnO2, the only economic mineral of tin. This as a mineral plus other accompanying minerals make up tin ore.


Samples of minerals amongst many in the museum, which is full of Cornish mining artifacts and history including a viewing room for watching mining films. If you want to get the feel of mining in Cornwall, King Edward Mine is well worth a visit.


Music and dance from the Hevva Dancers, traditional Cornish dancers performed at intervals during the day, along with St Day band. See video of Hevva Dancers HERE
