Mining talk

Expanding on a recent article in the Society’s journal written by Mick McArdle, Campaign to save Geevor, he is giving a talk at St Just WI hall on Tuesday 9th July at 7.30pm. Mick will be showing original artefacts and photos from the campaign and it is hoped to have a substantial mining crowd.

Courtney Rowe

It is with deep regret that we announce the death of Courtney Rowe, on May 25th, at the age of 88. As a long-standing member of the Society, Courtney was involved in the restoration of the Levant whim and the Puffing Devil project. During the 1990s he was the Society’s Publications Secretary and served on the council for many years.

Change to advertised Programme

Because of the interest in the 80th anniversary of the miners’ strike at South Crofty there has been a change to the programme. The talk scheduled for 9th August at King Edward Mine will now be The 1939 Strike, by Allen Buckley. The talk by Steve Polglaze has been rescheduled and will now be held on 14th February 2020 (if you want to take your loved one for a special evening out!).

New publication

We are pleased to give advance noticeof the Society’s latest publication, Levant Mine, An Anthology. This is a volume of essays containing significant new research and many previously unpublished photographs. The articles deal with aspects of the mine’s history as well as work to restore the Levant whim back to steam and restoration work to the broader site. The book also covers the Man-Engine Disaster of 1919 and information on the families affected. Hard back and soft back versions will be published. This October marks the centenary of the Man-Engine Disaster. We understand that there will be at least one commemorative event and will publish details as and when we receive them.
