Wheal Harriett, Camborne, Camborne - Redruth - St Day District, Cornwall, England, UK
A copper mine, working four NE-trending lodes on the northeastern slopes of Camborne Beacon, east of Carn Camborne Mine and northwest of the Great Condurrow sett. The chief lodes were Main and Engine Lodes, which were worked from Engine Shaft. Caunter Lode, just south of Engine Lode and only encountered at depth, was only developed for several fathoms. Alexander's Lode, about 80 yards north of Main Lode, was only exploited from a crosscut in the eastern part of the sett.
UK Grid Reference: SW658395
From 1835 to 1848, Wheal Harriett produced 9,030 tons of 5.5% copper ore. The grid reference marks the site of Engine Shaft. There are almost no traces of the mine workings left.
