Welcome to the
Carn Brea Mining Society
Carn Brea Mining Society was formed in 1974 with the objective of encouraging the study of all aspects of mining, geology and mineralogy in the South West of England.
For over a quarter of a century the Society had held and continue to hold regular meetings, usually illustrated talks by experts on mining or closely related subjects. During the summer months field trips are held.
Evening meeting are usually held on the third Tuesday of the month and are free all are most welcome.
The Society are members on the National Association of History Mining Organisation (NAHMO).
The Society continues to work closely with Councils, both at local and County level and regularly comment on planning and all other proposals which could impact on mining sites.
All in all the Society believe that it can be considered the premier Mining Society in Cornwall.
Many members of the Society are volunteer helpers/workers at King Edward Mine
