Perranzabuloe and the North Coast mines, Cornwall

Perranzabuloe and the North Coast mines, Cornwall

Perranzabuloe and the North Coast Mines were starting to move away from the copper and tin lodes, and produced more Silver, Lead, Wolfram, and Zinc. A number of mines including Wheal Leisure worked the area round Perranporth. Sand dune movements have removed most of the remains of Wheal Ramoth and Wheal Vlow to the north, and little trace remains of the once-important workings on the Perran Iron Lode and the Penhale mines. Inland, other once-important groups of mines operated around Goonhavern, Chiverton and Wheal Rose.
