I pressed him to contact you to see if you still maybe wanted the article for the next journal ( I’d like to see it myself too! ) and confirmed he was still at the same email namely

The conference celebrated the life in mining of the society’s late president George Hall and gave an opportunity for society members to present papers on various aspects of historical mining in Wales and elsewhere.
> Papers relating to George Hall provide personal recollections from people who had come into contact with him through mining, a description of his work in connection with the Shropshire mines, a pictorial record of his mineral processing mill at Esgairmwyn and a discussion of his archival legacy.
