During the late 1970s I was marginally involved with work carried out at the Camborne School of Mines (CSM) pilot plant into the feasibility of opening up the historic Hemerdon tungsten mine, situated on the edge of Dartmoor National Park near Plymouth. The work was undertaken by international mining company AMAX, under the supervision of Dr. Simon Meik and Dr. Gillian Hall. Simon, who I last met 4 years ago at Precious Metals '10, is now with Dundee Precious Metals, Bulgaria, and Gillian is with FLSmidth in Cornwall.
