Mines and water, two sides of same coin.

Impressive pump.

Very interesting video, thanks for that.
Said on the news last night that there is a fortune to be made in some of the old Cornish tin mine workings now if they could mine the lithium out of the ground - so keep pumping, lads!!
Cheers

Good to see the Levant engine working. When I visited there in 2000 it was down for repairs. I was disappointed because there are the remains of an engine house near where we then lived in Sheidow Park South Australia which is said to have housed an identical engine. The engine worked at the Worthing Mine Hallett Cove (near Sheidow Park) in c1850 before being relocated to the Bremer Mine at Callington from whence it disappeared.
