fingal on Slieve Binnian North Tor, 2007
by fingal  16 Dec 2007
At very short notice I managed to get in a hike in the Mournes. Has anyone else come across the "prospecting" on Slieve Binnian (Summit of North Tor) on the North West side? There is a seam that runs to the surface on the second tor, approaching from Slieve Binnian itself, which has been drilled. A significant amount of rock (maybe 2-3 cubic metres) has been prised off to excavate the seam itself. There are crystals to be found in some of the rock which is left to one side so I guess the "crystal collector" made off with the mother lode.
