British Mining No 16 – The Gallantry Bank Copper Mine
by C. J. Carlon
This volume, which also contains a review of mining in the Triassic rocks of the Shropshire-Cheshire basin, details mining at a small mine on the southern flank of the Peckforton Hills, which was intermittently worked for 200 years.
The account of the mine, the orebody and these half forgotten workings has been drawn from scanty records of various adventurers who were convinced of a great hidden wealth of Copper.
