Ref.: (in part): Rocks & Min.: 23:25. A Pb-Zn mine. The mine has almost been completely obliterated by "landscapeing". The mine is considered to be very old, possibly pre-Roman. Roman coins have also been found on the site.
Recorded working starts from about 1620, when in was a Royal mine mostly developed for it's silver content in the lead ore. It was further developed in the 1640's by Thomas Bushell. In 1700 the mine was being worked by the Company of Mine Adventurers, this lasted untill 1744.
In 1836 the lease was taken up by John Taylor & Sons, although there may have been some work done befor this date. Goginan continued to be worked utill 1886. At various times the mine was worked with otheres in the near area.
Production figures are only avlible for the Taylor working, so could well be at least twice the record.
Goginan has been largely destroyed by uniformed landscaping.
25108 tons of lead ore
500000 ozs of silver (from lead ore)
