September Mining Sundowners

A low turnout of only about a dozen people last night at Falmouth's Chain Locker pub, for the September Cornish Mining Sundowner. A pleasant surprise, however, was the appearance of Mike Hallewell of SGS, who I have not seen for several years, and two Metso men, Andrew Wilkinson, and Shane Sullivan, Shane making his debut at the sundowners (he is 2nd left on the photo below).

With fellow minerals engineers Andrew Wilkinson (Metso),
Mike Hallewell (SGS) and Nick Wilshaw (Grinding Solutions) 
And I am pleased that the Devon Mining Sundowner, just across the border, is beginning to take shape. Charlie Northfield of Drakelands Tungsten Mine has sent me the photo below taken at the Sundowner held at the Miners’ Arms, Hemerdon village, on 5th September. Current employees from Wolf Minerals enjoyed the company of three former AMAX Hemerdon employees. Left to right on the photo are Roger Craddock, AMAX Project Manager, Don Seymour, AMAX Accountant, Rick Taylor, Wolf Mine Planner, David Howourth, Wolf Health, Safety and Training Manager, Mrs Julie Taylor, Tony Delany, Wolf Process Plant Superintendent, Andrew Sarosi, AMAX Chief Metallurgist, Henry Chalcraft, Wolf Environmental Officer and Barnaby Hudson, Wolf Environmental Manager. The next Devon Sundowner will be held in the Miners' Arms, Hemerdon, on Friday 3rd October, starting at 5pm.

And more good news today from across the border, this one 500 miles away. The sun will not be going down on the UK just yet!
