Duchy of Cornwall WWI Tin and Wolfram Mine, Kit Hill The Duchy opened this mine in January 1916 as part of their war effort; Dines suggests that it closed in 1921. While there was later exploration on the hill, the Duchy mine was the last working to go into production. We will be looking at the archaeological evidence on the eastern slopes of Kit Hill, within the Country Park, and, with the permission of the landowner, some features outside the Park.
