Cornish Mining Sundowner, September

Carol Richards and CSM mining students
There was a fairly low turnout at last night's sundowner at Falmouth's Chain Locker pub. No surprise guests this time, but nevertheless a good evening of conversation, despite a touch of autumn in the air. It was interesting to talk about the discovery of gold at the abandoned South Crofty tin mine, and national news reports that the profits would be split between the Queen, and Prince Charles, the Duke of Cornwall.  I think the chances of South Crofty ever becoming a working gold mine are as remote as me taking over from Daniel Craig as the next James Bond!

In the photo below are Paul and John (sorry do not know surnames), mineral processors with FLSmidth, me and Barbara, Flee and Nick Wilshaw of Comminution '14 sponsor Grinding Solutions, and biohydrometallurgist Dave Dew.

The next sundowner is on October 24th.
