Good question. I did a quick search but could'nt find anything. I know Cornwall is one of the places listed for fracking in the near future tho.
Can you give a link to your source because Cornwall is mainly granite batholiths. All inflammable gas would have exploded millions of years ago.
Due to the magma intrusions, metamorphosis occurred in the local sedimentary rock creating elements tin, copper, gold and silver.
The only workable mine close by is South Crofty tin mine which costs a lot of money to keep afloat when working on 400 and 420 fathom levels.
Been there, done that, an awesome experience when long-holing on level 400. Big explosions, Richter scale 3 earthquakes and air blasts
When you mention 'fracking', do you mean the geo-thermal project which involved pumping cold water down at Wheal Jane mine (i think) and running
turbines off the hot water/gas as it rose ?
