Mining Reports

Mining activity has been carried out across the British Isles for centuries reaching a peak in the nineteenth century. The majority of mining activity has long since ceased.

The Council of Mortgage Lenders and the Law Society advise that mining searches should be considered in areas where historical mining activity has taken place. ETSOS offer a range of residential and commercial mining searches. Our Hazard Checker will identify whether a report is required for land and property purchase, sale and development

Coal & Brine Mining Search

Coal mining searches are vital for anyone buying property in a coal mining area in Britain. A Coal Authority mining report identifies the environmental and stability risk arising from any past, current and future underground and surface coal mining activity that affects a property. This includes information on mineshafts, subsidence claims, reported hazards and mine gas emissions that may affect the property.

Since 23rd October 2006 all Coal Authority mining reports in England and Wales also include information from the Cheshire Brine Subsidence Compensation Board (CBSCB) identifying if the property has been the subject of a claim for subsidence damage caused by brine extraction. A mining report enables you to determine whether a property has been subject to a coal mining related subsidence damage notice or claim since 1994. It also provides information on past, current and proposed underground coal mining activity along with details of any recorded old coal mineshafts and licences for future mining.

Cornish Tin Mining Search

A Metalliferous Mining Search should always be carried out in Cornwall and West Devon.  The search will provide a details of past workings which could cause subsidence.  The report typically includes tin, copper, lead, silver, iron and zinc mining. In addition, information is provided as to whether current or potential future mining will take place which may affect the stability of the property.

Ball/China Clay Mining Search

Ball/China Clay mining has taken place around Cornwall and West Devon.  The main Clay Mining areas are around St. Austell and Dartmoor.  We recommend that any purchaser buying a property in these areas carry out a China Clay Search to determine whether the property is likely to be affected by clay deposits or if there is a risk of subsidence.

Limestone/Chalk/Bathstone Mining Search

Limestone mining was common in the West Midlands in the past, specifically postcodes considered to fall within Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall or Wolverhampton. We recommend a prospective purchaser of a property in an area affected by previous limestone mining carry out a Limestone Search to establish whether the property is likely to be affected by subsidence.
