Manganese Ore - Restormel (#1215) - Virtual

2021-2-15 · Manganese Ore - Restormel (#1215) Forming botryoidal growths (kidney-ore) this sample could easily be mistaken as iron ore, not least because it is from Restormel Royal mine which operated as an iron mine from at least 1797 until final closure in 1910. Between 1855 and 1883, 127,796 tons of iron ore were produced.
