It took a large number of people to make sure the mine worked safely and efficiently.
A mine can only work well if machinery, materials and the workers are all in the right place at the right time. From the miners who worked underground to the surface workers and managers, every person employed at Geevor had a specific role.
The early 18th and 19th century mines and the modern Geevor mine employed a great many men in a variety of jobs. These included stopers, developers, trammers, pumpmen, carpenters, blacksmiths, washers, roasters, refiners, surveyors, assayers, managers and many more.
