One of Cornwall's traditional industries gets a shot in the arm

The first china clay pit in thirty years is open.

Four million tonnes will be extracted from Higher Moor.

Imerys say the operation will safeguard nearly a hundred jobs.

Ed Buscombe is Central Area Mines Manager:

"It's really a statement to say, 'look, there's work here, business continues, we think we're going to be here for a while yet', and locally should be seen as a very good thing. Certainly, as a local myself, I'm very proud to be a part of this development.

"Certainly with the six pits we currently have in operation, the opening of Higher Moor means we can continue to run a good blend across those six pits and it's really an opportunity for us to start developing for the future."
