 Silver mining and the English Crown: direct working of the Devon mines, 1292 to 1350. Peter Claughton
With prospect of good returns in 1299 the mines were granted to Italian bankers, the Friscobaldi, as security for a loan but, in their short tenure, they paid little regard to maintenance or development work and left the mines in a poor state.
The miners from the lead mining field brought no particular deep mining skills and the tinners employed in adit drainage work were utilising their skills in draining shallow, but wet, stream workings.
Although there is no evidence that the Crown opened up the Devon mines with deep working in mind, by its willingness to provide the capital necessary to develop the mines, it set the pattern for the application of capital intensive techniques in the industry.

 "A gold mine in Montana is a lode of controversy"
Crown Butte also plans to dispose of up to 5.5 million tons of additional tailings by covering them with water and placing them in an enormous impoundment that would occupy the valley next to the mountain.
Crown Butte argues that the impoundment technology, which has been used in Canada and Scandinavia, is safe and that its venture will clean up old mining sites now polluting the area.
Crown Butte is seeking to obtain 27 acres of federal land for the mine, citing an 1872 mining law requiring the federal government to lease land at $5 an acre if there is proof of a valuable mineral deposit.

 Mining in Cornwall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mining in Cornwall has existed from the days of Stone Age man and mining in Cornwall dates back to between 1000 and 2000 B.C. when Cornwall is thought to have been visited by metal traders from the eastern Mediterranean.
However it was in the 19th century that mining reached its zenith, before foreign competition depressed the price of copper, and later tin, to a level that made Cornish ore unprofitable.
Dolcoath, (Cornish for Old Ground), the 'Queen of Cornish Mines' was, at a depth of 3500 feet (1067 m), for many years the deepest mine in the world, not to mention one of the oldest before its closure in 1921.

Crown Butte was moving the mining proposal forward under some of the most stringent procedures in the world to ensure safety for the environment from all activities of the proposed mine.

The withdrawal did appear, however, to be an attempt by the administration to prejudice the media and public into believing that the danger of large scale mining development in the region was greater than it truly was, and into believing the area to be mined was pristine and untouched.

 The Goldbug Weekly Comment - April 4, 1997
It takes time to build a mining company and the Brock Group has been working on 3 of them since the early 90's: American Bullion, Columbia Gold and Northern Crown Mines (NCW.V) All 3 of them have been successful so far as they discovered 3 potentially economic deposits.
I am convinced that Northern Crown has all four and I suggest you call Bob Swenarchuk who manages investor relations, so he can tell you in his own words why what I am saying is a realistic picture of the potential of this company.
Northern Crown has clearly the potential to develop between one and two million ounces at Guadelupe, but let's be conservative and use the 300,000 ounces of the Zapote zone, and a very conservative US$35 per ounce of gold in the ground.
