Mulberry Hill Mine, Cornwall

Principal ores: TIN

St Austell: grid reference SX019657

Notable minerals: Cassiterite.

Mulberry Hill lies one and three quarter miles northwest of Lanivet on the southern side of Mulberry Downs. It lies in the Lanivet Section of the St. Austell Mining District. An opencast quarry rather than a tin mine, it was an ancient operation. It worked at times with Wheal Prosper Tin Mine (grid reference SX030642). Nearby lay Tremore Quarry, about threequarters of a mile to the southwest. Mulberry Hill tin mine worked on and off over the years and was not a great producer, although it did raise 1,350 tons of tin between 1859 and 1916.

There is a wealth of information on the mines and miners of Cornwall available. Why not explore Cornwall's industrial heritage through the Bookstore?
