Warner, R., MOLES, NORMAN and Chapman, R. (2010) Evidence for early Bronze Age tin and gold extraction in the Mourne Mountains, County Down Journal of the Mining Heritage Trust of Ireland, 10. pp. 29-36. ISSN 1649-0908Full text not available from this repository.
We summarize the evidence for believing that the Mourne Mountains of Co. Down were an important source of gold and time during the early Bronze Age. We suggest that these metals might have been extracted from buried eluvial/alluvial deposits and we present evidence for what might be the remians of prehistoric stream-works.
