Mining Update May 2018

The three Public Display Meetings were held in Callington Town Hall on May 3rd, 4th and 5th.  These displays showed historical mining, Cornwall Resources Ltd (CRL) 2017 drilling locations and results plus the planned drilling for 2018.

Altogether about ninety people visited the displays over the three days and CRL were delighted with the general response which was very positive to mining restarting in the Kelly Bray area.

A new General Permitted Development Order has been approved by Cornwall Council for a further 6 months of Exploration Drilling. The drilling contract has now been signed and the first drill rig should be on site drilling in mid-June probably in a field along Redmoor Road where drilling occurred last year.

The drilling company is called Priority Drilling and they are looking to recruit some temporary people for their drill rigs. If anyone is interested please contact Michael McCarthy at
