The possibility of tin mining restarting in Cornwall

While I have to admit that an improvement in employment prospects in Cornwall and Devon should be welcomed, the potential damage to the environment must be taken into consideration.

The tungsten and tin mine on the edge of Dartmoor at Hemerdon will threaten that beautiful area and any developments must take into consideration the risks to the environment.
