This is a ‘virtual’ talk via Zoom or YouTube (live streaming)
Rob Vernon will begin with an introduction to the geology of the area before discussing the most important minerals worked (copper, lead, gold, slate, coal and a few “miscellanea”). He will then take us on a round trip of the various mining districts, including perhaps the best known copper mine in Wales (at Parys Mountain on Anglesey), as well as the Parc lead and zinc mine at Aberconway and the Gilfach copper mine in Caernarvonshire, among many others.
