Goole Pellas Mine, Cornwall
St Ives: grid reference SW498397
The sett of Goole Pellas lies on the eastern flank of Rosewall Hill on the outskirts of St. Ives. Its nearest neighbours are St. Ives Consols Mine (Grid Ref. SW506397), some 700 metres away to the east, whilst Rosewall Hill and Ransom United lies just to the southwest at grid ref. SW496392. This tin mine employed between 117 and 174 workers from 1878 and 1881. The chief agent during this period was William Buglehole. The chief lodes on the sett were: Goole Pellas, New North and North Lodes whilst the major shafts were: New Flat Rod, Jane's, Unity and Brown's Engine Shafts.
In 1907 Goole Pellas became part of the 'The St Ives Consolidated Mines Limited'. This new group was an amalgamation of the former St Ives Consols mine with Rosewall Hill and Ransom United and Goole Pellas , Trenwith, Giew Mine and Georgia. This brief reworking continued until 1915.
