More than 200 new mining jobs could be coming to Cornwall.

Bosses at South Crofty say they will be needed to extract tin, zinc and copper.

They expect the site at Pool to reopen by 2015.

Business bosses are giving it a cautious welcome.

Kim Conchie heads up Cornwall's Chamber of Commerce: "I don't share the concern that that (mining) isn't part of Cornwall's future. I think if they're proper jobs with the all the health and safety regulations and access to the world markets that positions like that have now, I think it will be good news all round.

"It's true that tin prices have increased so much that it is now economic again to extract it from Cornwall. But it's always just round the corner. That would be my reservation, that people suddenly start relying on these 200 positions as definite and we have heard it before".
