Thanks for the reply. I'll certainly check out the BGS.
Where was the core storage building?
On the underground front Barry Gamble took the geologists in on a few
occaisions as far as Anna Maria Engine shaft

The underground investigation I understand just involved one trip with PCG
members into Wheal Fanny. There were a few press releases at the time
regarding the exploration, & as at that time Govenment grants were available
towards mineral exploration, the BGS may hold details of what they did. A
few years later SWCM were planning on reinvestigating the cores, but by that
time the core storage building, adjoining the had been vandalised and the
context of the cores had probably been lost. I have got a core store index
recovered after the vandalism.
