About the event

HISTORY OF SILVER MOUNTAIN

Known locally as  Gwaith Poole. (Poole’s Minework), the original discovery of the mineral  vein was made around the year 1742, during the reign of George III. The  names of the original prospectors are not know but they would have  possessed a Mining License or ‘Tack Note’ issued by the Agent of the  Gogerddan Estate on behalf of Sir Lewis Pryse, the ‘Mineral Lord’. The  first workings consisted of two shallow shafts connected by a level  driven along the lode. The location of the early trials was in woodland,  southwest of the great ‘opencut’; visible on the present ‘Miners  Trail’. By 1790, two ‘adits’ or levels were being blasted into the  hillside using techniques of hand-drilling and gunpowder charges. Both  of those original tunnels are now accessible to visitors.

We will be investigating this location to see what may still live here.
