£200m bid to reopen Nenthead mine

A REDUNDANT mine could reopen as part of a possible £200m investment.

Exploratory drilling is under way at Nenthead to asses the scale of deposits of lead and zinc at the former Rampgill mine.
Mining company Minco said if the scheme went ahead it would create around 300 jobs.
Cumbria County Council and the North Pennines AONB Partnership have already indicated their support.
