The Mine Explorer Society evolved through a chance meeting of a small group of people in Nenthead with a common interest in Mine Exploration. Since the establishment of a regularly updated website and an affiliation to NAMHO, there has been considerable interest in its activities from exploreres in the UK and overseas.

The Society exists to research and publish information for the use and enjoyment of like minded people, and as such does not operate any organised underground trips other than those for the purposes of research. To this end we hope that we have succeeded in providing you with something of interest. The Society at this stage of its development has no actual membership outside of the small group of people who run the Society.

We are always pleased to hear from people and will answer any emails received. If you have any information that you would like to share; or have any queries please get in touch.
