This book commemorates the work of Jack Trounson, who was one of the leading twentieth-century authorities on Cornish mining and the greatest exponent of its future potential. He had an unparalleled ability to marshal a wealth of detail on the past working of mines and use it to point to places where minerals might still be worked at a profit.The articles collected here were first published during the Second World War but remain an up-to-date guide for historians, prospectors and planners alike. A leading member of the Cornish Instutue of Engineers, the Cornish Mining Development Association, the Cornish Chamber of Mines, and the Trevithick Society, few have done more to preserve the county's industrial past and promote its future prosperity.
The Cornish Miner and the Cornish Mining Industry, 1870-1921 [microform]

The object of this study is to describe and analyse a period of profound social and economical change within the metalliferous mining industry of Cornwall, the thesis being that, consequent upon world expansion of mineral production, changes were forced upon the Cornish industry. These resulted in a complete restructuring of mining in Cornwall. The consequences for the men and women working in, or dependent upon, the industry were not beneficial. They resulted in the worsening of an already hard and dangerous way of life. The study is in two parts. The first deals with the events and changes that occurred within Cornish mining from 1870 until its virtual demise in 1921. The first changes were technological but such innovations had consequences that made further change inevitable. There followed a consolidation of the Cornish mining and smelting companies and their reconstruction from the 1890s as Limited Liability companies. Reconstruction was followed by a period of speculative boom, by the demands of a war economy from 1914 and, subsequently, by the crisis of the 1920s. Although this crisis was caused by the post-war fall in metal prices, the failure of the mine companies to undertake development or build up capital reserves over a long period, together with the changed social and economic relations within the industry, made easy its abandonment by capital. The second part examines the Cornish miner in the wider context of the world outside the mine. The repercussions of industrial change upon this world are discussed with reference to rural customs and practices. The role of women, and the various formal and informal systems of social support and control, are examined. Labour relations and the growth of Trade Unions are discussed, both in the Cornish and the international context. It is argued throughout that the key to understanding the change within Cornwall is the understanding of the links, both of capital and labour, with the development of metal mining overseas. Thus the study ends with an examination of the migration patterns of Cornish miners and the part they played in expanding the mining frontiers of the world.
The Cornish in the Caribbean

Type: BOOK - Published: 2019-01-15 - Publisher: Troubador Publishing Ltd

The first book to look specifically at the movement of Cornish men and women to and from the Caribbean from the early days of colonialism. A fascinating subject for those with an interest in all things Cornish, be they in Cornwall, in the Caribbean, or in the wider Cornish diaspora. The Cornish in the Caribbean is the first study to tell the stories of some of the many Cornish men and women who went to the Caribbean. Some became wealthy plantation owners, while others came as indentured servants and labourers. Cornish men were active in the armed services, taking part in the numerous sea and land battles fought by the competing European powers throughout the region. Cornish officers and crew sailed on the ships of the Falmouth Packet Service which took the mail to and from the Caribbean. Methodism was strong in Cornwall and Methodist missionaries and their wives came to the Caribbean to evangelise both the enslaved and the newly free. The most striking transfer of Cornish skills to the Caribbean was to be found in mining. As Cornish mining declined, and the Great Emigration of miners and their families got underway, Cornish mining engineers, captains and miners went out to mines throughout the Caribbean. “Meticulously researched and highly readable” Bridget Brereton, Professor Emerita, University of the West Indies.

Regulating Health and Safety in the British Mining Industries, 1800–1914

Type: BOOK - Published: 2016-12-05 - Publisher: Routledge

This book explores the emergence and growth of state responsibility for safer and healthier working practices in British mining and the responses of labour and industry to expanding regulation and control. It begins with an assessment of working practice in the coal and metalliferous mining industries at the dawn of the nineteenth century and the hazards involved for the miners, before charting the rise of reforming interest in these industries. The 1850 Act for the Inspection of Coal Mines in Great Britain brought tighter legislation in coal mining, yet the metalliferous miners continued to work without government-regulated safety and health controls until the early 1870s. The author explores the reasons for this, taking into account socio-economic, environmental, medical, technical, and cultural factors that determined the chronology and nature of early reform. The comparative approach between the coal and metalliferous mining sectors provides a useful model for exploring the significance of organized labour in gaining health and safety concessions, particularly as the miners in the metalliferous sector, in contrast to the colliers who unionised early, placed a high value on independence and self-sufficiency in the workplace. As an investigation into the formation of health and safety legislation in a major industry, this work will be valuable to all those with an interest in medical history, occupational health, legal history, and the social history of work in the nineteenth century.

Cornwall is acknowledged internationally as the home of hard-rock mining and the cradle of the steam engine. The rich mineral deposits with which the county is historically endowed created the desire to seek the knowledge and skills to discover and mine them. Tin and copper were the most abundant metals to be found in their mineral form, though various metals such as lead, silver, zinc, to name but a few, were also mined in significant amounts. The landscape is dotted with the remains of former mine workings where tin and other minerals still exist. At the present time a number of mining companies are carrying out exploratory work due to the rising demand for metals. As part of a West of England mining field, the Hemerdon Wolfram mine in Devon is planning to be in production in the enar future, In this book, the latest in a series on Cornish mining history, the author protrays a photographic account of a group of mines in the Central Mining District, including the famous Dolcoath mine. This well-annotated volume, drawn from the Trounson-Bullen Collection, will be welcomed by all those with an interest in mining in the county of Cornwall.

THE INDUSTRY THAT FORGED THE MODERN WORLD Throughout history metals and raw materials have underpinned human activity. So it is that the industry responsible for extracting these materials from the ground - mining - has been ever present throughout the history of civilisation, from the ancient world of the Egyptians and Romans, to the industrial revolution and the British Empire, and through to the present day, with mining firms well represented on the world's most important stock indexes including the FTSE100. This book traces the history of mining from those early moments when man first started using tools to the present day where metals continue to underpin economic activity in the post industrial age. In doing so, the history of mining methods, important events, technological developments, the important firms and the sparkling personalities that built the industry are examined in detail. At every stage, as the history of mining is traced from 40,000BC to the present day, the level of detail increases in accordance with the greater social and industrial developments that have played out as time has progressed. This means that a particular focus is given to the period since the industrial revolution and especially the 20th century. A look is also taken into the future in an effort to chart the direction this great industry might take in years to come. Many books have been written about mining; the majority have focused on a particular metal, geographical area, mining event or mining personality, but 'The History of Mining' has a broader scope and covers all of these essential and fascinating areas in one definitive volume.
