Sygun Copper mines
The Sygun Copper Mines just outside Beddgelert - set in the midst of stunning scenery in Snowdonia. There's a shortish self-guided audio-visual tour of the old Victorian mines here and at the end you can "pan for gold"
Oh and if you remember the old film "The Inn of the Sixth Happiness ( the one about the missionary leading the children out of china) then you might be interested to know that some of the filming was done round here!
In the pic here you can see Laura (Hayward68) rushing in to get her hard hat for the tour of the mine. We had a great couple of days in Snowdonia together.
