New Books / Re: 2018, Synnot, Silver Mining on Sark
« Last post by Frank de Wit on July 17, 2018, 09:37:22 AM »
This interesting little book briefly tells the story of mining at Sark's Hope Mine around 1835. As the people on Sark had little mining abilities, around 250 Cornish miners were brought over to carry out the mining. The book illustrates the type of activities that were carried on in the 19th century while the mine was operating and the equipment used by the miners. As was the case in many of the Cornish tin mines, the Sark's Hope mine extended to around 300 feet out to sea and at a depth of around 20 fathoms. The mine itself extended down around 800 feet on land but most of this was also below sea level. Without the Cornish engineering abilities the mine would not have succeeded. The mine did not last long and closed in 1847. A large proportion of the mine structures and machinery remain on the island. Apparently there are no known photos of the mine operations before 1900 so the book is supplemented with photos from various Cornish mines to show what it must have been like at the time and the author explains how the various pieces of equipment operated. There is also a chapter containing modern photos of the mine site and descriptions of curative and preservation work carried out on the mine site between 2007-2011.
