Cambokeels Mine (Cammock Isle Mine; Cumnock Isle Mine; Cammock Eals Mine), Westgate, Weardale, North Pennines, Co. Durham, England, UK
The most recent production cycle at Cambokeels began in the early 1970's and for the next decade and a half the mine was one of the most productive sources of fluorite in Weardale. Malcolm Brown & Madison acquired the mine in 1973 and put in a new incline below the old Horse Level, discovering high grade fluorite ore from the 40 meter level down. The mine was sold in short order to Swiss Aluminium UK (SAMUK) who established working levels at 200 meters (in the Tynebottom Limestone) and at 240 meters (in the Whin Sill and Jew Limestone). The mine was sold again in 1982 to Minworth Ltd., who established levels at 280 and 320 meters, and had reached the 340 level by the time the mine closed in 1989. Currently, the decline is flooded and the Beaumont Horse Level has collapsed just inside the entrance.
