Now, I'm presuming Alasdair refers to my use of the terms
'Cardiganshire zinc production and published ticketings' in a paper
on 'Silver and Zinc: Cardiganshire, Brittany, and Dillwyn & Co. of
Swansea' in D. Linton (ed.) Towards a Better Understanding, Welsh
Mines and Mining No. 2 (2011), p. 46. The overall data for which was
received at second-hand but I do do take Alasdair's point and will
check one or two of the original sources once I get home.
