An old Cornish tin mine has announced ambitious plans for its future.
Geevor ceased to be a working mine in 1991
Geevor, on the outskirts of Pendeen in west Cornwall, ceased to be a working mine in 1991.
It brought to an end nearly 300 years of tin mining on the site.
But the new multi-million pound plans involve opening up major sections of the mine's workings to the public.
The Trustees of Pendeen Community Heritage (PCH), who manage Geevor Tin Mine Museum and Heritage Centre, have prepared ambitious plans for the future development of the site.
During the last 18 months, the St Just Mines Research Group has re-explored the old workings and established that huge areas are still accessible.
Proposed areas for the "tourist circuit" of the mine workings have been narrowed down.
The means of access for visitors would be a powered lift system in a specially constructed shaft.
PCH is now working on plans to organise an underground visit for members of bodies which could fund the project, including the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Regional Development Agency and Government Office South West.
