Examples of some of the material used to formulate mining searches:

This is a mere snippet of the material we hold, which runs to over 45,000 images and 300 books.

This material is designed to communicate the location of workings to someone wanting to check their whereabouts. Surveyors used a variety of equipment to record this data and displayed it in a variety of ways. Early plans are sometimes inaccurate, but where possible many sources of data are overlain and the best picture of current reality constructed. 

None of these maps/plans were copied at the Cornwall Record Office, even though that is where you would go to view them now. If you want to view some of the material, Google "Cornwall Record Office" or pop into the "Cornwall Studies Library" in Redruth where your query will be dealt with by a team of highly able and enthusiastic staff.
