John Taylor’s mines -A quick list

Here is a list of mine’s extracted from Roger Burt’s biography of John Taylor. It’s a ‘quick and dirty’  attempt to summarise Taylor’s mining interests, so I am sure its not complete, and not fully verified. I have posted however, as it is a useful reference and shows the scale of his activity. If you have any more mines to add, please comment to the post .
