Wheal Uny

Wheal Uny is located on the eastern slopes of Carn Brea - the northern edge of the Great Flat Lode.
The Lode was tilted at an angle of about 45 degrees enabling the mines to extract the tin or copper ore without digging to deep
On the left the Engine House (1869-70) for a 70-in Pumping Engine and the Whim Engine House (1880) for a 26-in rotative, worked the Hind's Shaft.
The mine was operating intermittently from 1800 , mining copper then later tin from the Great Flat Lode , closing finally in 1893.
