Cornish Mine Images by Simon Jones
Simon has been photographing the Cornish mining industry for over 30 years and has a fascinating collection of images from all of the major Cornish Mines including some of the lesser known gems. Simon has selected 60 of his best images for the exhibition at Geevor, painstakingly hand printing and framing every image. It’s taken a lot of work for Simon and those who have helped a long the way, but the exhibition is up and looks great. The exhibition is available as part of our site entry fee and during site opening hours. We also have a selection of images available in our shop. For information on Simon’s work please visit the link below.
"A great tribute to all who have been involved in hard rock mining in the county"
"An awesome display of life underground in the Cornish Mines"
Both Simon and Geevor are very grateful to Cornish Metals for sponsoring this exhibition. We wish them continued success with all their work at South Crofty
Simon would like to dedicate this exhibition to the generations of men and women who worked the Cornish Mines and to his late friend Dr Nick Le Boutillier.
Metal mining is such an important part of Cornwall's history. At Geevor get hands-on and discover all about mining on the dramatic Tin Coast of West Cornwall near Lands End.
