A diverse weekend in the Slate Mining District of Blaenau Ffestiniog which will consist of a surface walk on one day and an easy underground trip on the other day. Saturday night will be spent in Porthmadog.
Note – mine exploration is a high-risk sport and it is not possible to reduce all risks to a low level. CATMHS seek to support exploration in a safe manner while recognising that significant risks will remain and the safety of the activity will ultimately depend on the ability of the group and participants to take sensible actions to ensure exploration is conducted with a reasonable margin of safety. However accidents and incidents can happen and everyone taking part in this event do so at their own risk.
