A digital painting using landscape2 in Dap, of a Cornish Tin Mine.

Information mainly from Wikipedia and original photograph used with the kind permission of pambenn of the morgueFile.

Mining in Cornwall and Devon began in the early Bronze Age approximately 2,150 BC and ended with the South Crofty tin mine in Cornwall closing in 1998. Tin and later also copper were the most productive of the metals extracted: some tin mining continued long after mining of other metals had become unprofitable.

Historically extensive tin and copper mining has occurred in Devon and Cornwall, as well as arsenic, silver, zinc and a few other metals.
