Soil Sampling

Today 12 students from the Department of Earth Sciences Royal Holloway, University  of London led by Dr David Alderton took soil samples over a 30 metre stretch of pasture land above the crusher house where the lode has been plotted.

The samples collected by auger will be analysed for the presence of antimony. The results will be available in a few months.

Later this year a 4m deep trench will be cut here and more samples taken.

  1. Hello Richard,

    I’m heading down your way for the Russell Soc. field trip to Hingston this Friday and I wondered if it might be possible to have a dig in your wood on Monday on my way back up to Stroud?
    I really enjoy your posts, that fluorite you dug up is wonderful!
    Best wishes ,Adam
