Exploratory Drilling in Kelly Bray Historic Mining Area

You are probably already aware of the recent interest in the tin mineral lodes immediately around southern Kelly Bray. Cornwall Resources Ltd who control the mineral resources in the local area expect to commence drilling in the spring.

A total of around 20 holes are currently planned and to depths of up to 500 metres. The drilling programme is expected to take about 6 months. Local landowners are currently being contacted concerning access to their land.

Cornwall Resources Ltd are also in discussions with Cornwall Council, Callington Town Council and Kelly Bray Residents Association concerning the planned drilling programme.

Following discussions with local Councillors, Cornwall Resources have arranged for several communication sessions with the residents of Kelly Bray so that any questions about the drilling and future potential for mining around Kelly Bray can be answered. The location will be at the Swingletree pub in their conservatory area at 7pm for approximately one hour on the following dates;

January, Wednesday 18th – Jeff Harrison

Callington Cemetery

Callington Town Council are taking urgent advice from environmental agencies over what appears to be animal damage to the Cemetery on Liskeard Road.

The damage to the grass area, mainly below the lines of graves, has occurred during the Christmas period and the Council are concerned over the closeness of the damage to the graves.

The Council is now discussing what action can be taken with Natural England, who are the Regulatory Authority responsible for wildlife as, if the damage is being caused by animals such as badgers, action has to be specific as they have, as do a number of species, protected status.

The Council have also sought advice from other local authorities such as Charnwood Borough Council in Eastern England which experienced similar problems in the autumn.
