In September 1857, the Mining Journal reported showings of "antimony, copper and silver-lead ores" on the Long Rock, and on a proposal that had subsequently been made to start a mine there, whose engine would be driven by flat rods from the shore, but these plans were never carried out.
In 1819, and again in 1823, tin was recovered from the Long Rock and adjoining sands. The rock is nothing else than the outcrop of an elvan dyke, which, in some places, is impregnated with cassiterite.
1 valid mineral.
