Rosevale Mine has been preserved as a rare example of small scale tin mining in Cornwall. Commercially it operated between 1906 and 1913 and a disappointing amount of tin was produced which given falling tin prices turned out not be commercially viable. The mine is on the site of the older Wheal Chance mine.
In the mid 1970s a lease was taken out on the site by a group of enthusiasts who have cleared and restored the mine, A ladderway between number one and number two levels allows a through trip to be made. Some interesting artifacts such as tramways, chain ladders and ore chutes are in situ. Small scale tours are sometimes made available to specialist groups.
