Quantity in Stock:(SOLD)
Product Code: MIN952021

An envelope which contains a sample of 'unburnt' tin concentrate dated 25th April 1929 from the Bushorne Tin Stream Works near Menadarva which is situated in the Red River Valley. It seems by the envelope that the works were owned by Bennetts and Mounce. Very little remains of this small concern today other than a few humps and bumps of red tailings.
Another interesting factor is that the envelope has has the print 'The Penryn Mineral Agency' at Perran Wharf, Penryn, Cornwall which I can find very little information on.

An interesting and rare piece of Cornish mining history from the L. J. Bullen Collection.

Size 16 x 10 cm
