There are fresh hopes Cornwall's mining industry could be revived.
Test drills for tin and tungsten near Callington and Indian Queens are expected to start this year.
Companies New Age Exploration Limited and Treliver Minerals have acquired the rights to carry explore deposits underneath Kelly Bray near Callington and Treliver Manor Farm near Indian Queens respectively.
Similar work searching for tin, copper and zinc has already been carried out at South Crofty Mine in Camborne.
Chris Rogers, Mining Consultant for Redruth-based firm Cornwall Consultants, said: "It's to do with the economic heritage of the county, and obviously the future possible employment and wealth that might come from mining these deposits locally, and the benefit to the local communities.
"Obviously if they did find things, they'd have to go through mining and planning leases. They'd have to look at environmental constraints, they'd have to look at processing constraints, and the general viability of the deposits in these areas."
