The Cornish Miner – A.K.Hamilton Jenkin. (1927)

Page 255.

At a later date the large 90 inch engine erected on the west part of Mellanear Mine, near Hayle, is said by old miners to have ‘raised such revurs of water when she was forking’ that all the plumps (i.e. wells) in the immediate neighbourhood went dry. The fetching of water was thus another of the miner’s many ‘chares’ which had to be performed out of core.
