Caption: The mill, Geevor Mine, Pendeen, Cornwall.
Description: Geevor Mine, Pendeen. Geevor Mine, the mill. The mine ore is crushed to 2.5 inches and then washed in a 4-barrel rotating washer (far end, left) which delivers three sizes. The coarsest is passed to a conveyor belt for hand-picking of waste rock (female labour, left). The hand-picked ore goes (by central conveyor belt) to cone crushers and is then screened to half inch, the oversize being recrushed and the less than half-inch passing (by right-hand belt) to the storage bin. The mine straddles the Land's End Granite - country rock contact. The contact lies near the collar of the Victory Shaft where locally it dips at about 20 degrees to the north-west. The main lodes have steep dips and trend west-north-west to east-south-east and north-north-west to south-south-east.
