Bassett Mines
This group of mines is located outside Redruth, 1 1/2 miles SW of Redruth Railway Station. This location has been "cleaned up" and there are no original dump piles left. Rocks have been brought in another location and dumped there to show visitors what a "real" mine dump looks like. Hmm...wouldn't have been easier if they just....oh well, never mind.

We were fortunate enough to locate a sample with some small but nice flakes of torbernite on it.
