Cornish Tin: The Great Wheal Vor Project

Our first and flagship project is The Great Wheal Vor group of 26 former producing tin and copper mines in the Mining District of Breage, Cornwall, UK.

Described in 1929 as “the richest in tin of all the Cornish mines, probably the richest tin mine which has ever been worked in the world” (Hamilton Jenkin, writing in 1929).

By grade, if being mined today, it could be in the top 3 tin mines in the world. Our mineral rights cover all minerals and aggregates, including tin, copper, lithium, tungsten and geothermal energy.
