The company which owns a former Cornish tin mine has said it is a step closer to reopening it as a working mine.
The mills will be stored until the mine reopens
Baseresult said South Crofty, which closed eight years ago, could be up and running and employing local people within two years.
Five giant rock grinding mills have been transported from another Cornish mine, Wheal Jane, to South Crofty.
The £250,000 mills are used to extract tin. They will refurbished then stored until mining begins again at the site.
Baseresult is waiting for planning permission to be granted by Cornwall County Council. A result is expected at the end of August.
South Crofty closed as a working mine in 1998, bringing to an end a 3,000-year-old tin mining tradition in Cornwall.
