Worked a complex lode carrying copper, arsenic, silver, wolfram, tin, and pyrite, intermittently over many years and under a variety of names.

Kingsbury, A.W.G. (1966) Sir Arthur Russell. Mineralogical Magazine, vol. 35, n° 273, 673-677:

"In 1946, just after the end of the Second World War, an attempt was made to re-open the old mine of Wheal Martha, later known as New Consols, Luckett, near Callington, Cornwall. The mine suffered many setbacks after the reopening, and though, at one stage, Russell was called in to advise and became associated with it for a short time, the venture, as he himself had feared, proved abortive, and the mine was abandoned in 1952."
