Bibliography: Levant. The Mine Beneath the Sea, Cyril Noall. Situated in the St Just Mining District, the now-peaceful landscape of Levant was once a busy industrial area. Levant Mine first appeared on Martyn’s Map, as an amalgamation of three other early mines: Zawn Brinney, Boscregan and Wheal Unity.

Its location is remote, but deposits of tin and copper. Levant, nicknamed ‘The Mine Under the Sea’, made effective use of this technology, becoming a leviathan in the mining industry. By it had submarine mines.

Beneath an Angry Sea. Wheal Trewavas continued to grow throughout the s. Although no official plan of the mine and its shafts and tunnels has survived we know that it worked four copper lodes and one tin, all of which ran out under the sea bed.

Those lodes were called the Trewavas Old Lode, North Lode, Sowan Lode and Nimble Cutter Lode. They worked beneath the sea, in scorching heat, with only a tallow candle to light their path up rickety ladders and plummeting mine shafts.

Tin and copper mining is a staple of Cornish culture, even featuring on the flag. Levant Mine is built on one of the oldest hard-rock tin and copper mining areas in the county. The Levant Mine buildings are situated within a triangle of land between Levant Zawn, Trewellard Zawn and Geevor, although the mine s adits extend some km out from the cliffs and more than m beneath the sea bed.

The mine has the oldest surviving Cornish engine that remains in its original building, and is still capable of steaming. In the Levant Mining Company was formed, giving jobs to people; men, 44 women and children.

Levant Mine was originally an amalgamation of three earlier mines; The Zawn Brimmey, Boscregan and Wheal Unity. Like most Cornish mines Levant had workings which extended for over a mile beneath the sea. The sea never broke in when the mine was working but it did eventually find its way in after Levant had closed in In nearby Geevor Mine, which had bought Levant some years earlier, sealed the breach and pumped the mine dry again, to exploit the remaining submarine riches.

This meant a reduction in the energy, time and money needed to sink the shafts. Tunnels were also dug many fathoms below the sea, radiating from these shafts, so that the ore could be retrieved from the lodes extending deep beneath the seabed.

Arriving at Levant Mine, follow the bottom edge of its car park to pick up the South West Coast Path. Beneath The Haunting Sea is a gorgeous story with an evocative, atmospheric setting. Written in stunning, lyrical prose, Joanna Meyer weaves a tale about fate and the choice to embrace it, or fight for control.

Romantic and sweeping and epic, Beneath The Haunting Sea will be a must-read for fantasy lovers everywhere/5().

But there is another repeated refrain: Two consecutive double-page spreads between each part of the day in which the boy takes note of how the sea looks (paintings show its expansiveness and the play of light on water), and thinks of his father at work in the coal mine beneath the sea (paintings dominated by heavy, oppressive dark bearing down.

Production shafts south of the scheduling were linked to the dressing floors by tramway. In the early 20th century the mine was developed beneath the sea. North Levant and Geevor () built the core of the modern dressing mill, and began Wethered Shaft south east of the scheduling.

Levant is a detailed history, richly supported with appropriate documents, rather than an economic study, and in view of the fact that almost all the records pertain to the periodthe. Hidden beneath the sea is a labyrinth of tunnels which stretch a mile out, once used to extract tin and copper from the earth.

The earliest records of copper being mined at the site date back to   Levant, like nearby Botallack, was one of Cornwall's submarine mines (posting of 2nd October ) where the mineral lodes extended beneath the ocean floor in a vast labyrinth of tunnels extending more than a mile out to sea.Beneath the Heart of the Sea by Owen Chase (Hesperus £) Owen Chase was first mate on the Essex, a Nantucket whaling ship that was sunk by an enraged sperm whale in the middle of the Pacific.
