British Mining No 7 – A History of the Conlig and Whitespots Lead Mines

by A. Woodrow

Metalliferous Mining in Ireland has been almost completely neglected by modern writers and the mines in Ulster are virtually uknown.

This volume, which may help to redress the balance a little, traces the history, delevopment and characters involved in Northern Ireland’s once premier hard rock mining operation which, for a time, produced about a third of Ireland’s Lead output until its closure in the 1860’s.
