Mount Wellington Tin Mine
Mount Wellington headgear, 2000
With the fall of tin prices and the withdrawal of pumping subsidies, the mine finally closed in 1991. An attempt to revive the mine occurred when an individual tried to transform it into a visitor attraction, but his endeavour failed.
The site was bought by Mount Wellington Mine Ltd in early 2007, who removed the remaining headgear stump, and have proceeded to renovate the site. There are a number of tenants who operate exclusively in the Renewable Energy sectors such as Kensa Heat Pumps, R-Eco and Geoquip Marine.
Further works on site are planned.
