Local enquiries carried out have led officers to believe the deceased is a man in his seventies from Falmouth. Formal identification has not been carried out and officers are in the process of contacting next of kin.
At approximately 9.00am on Saturday 18th January a local dog walker located the body of a man within the grounds of the mine works at Wheal Maid near Carharrack in Cornwall. She alerted the Police who attended, cordoned off the area and commenced enquiries.
We believe the man has had a serious accident within the works and subsequently died at the scene. His identity is unknown at this time and we would ask anyone who may know him to come forward to assist us.
The gentleman is aged between 50 and 65 years of age, he was dressed in a blue fleece, dark coloured Ron Hill type running bottoms and black Specialized Sport TR cycling shoes. He was also wearing a pair of brown gardening gloves. He has a full grey beard and a bald head. A pair of spectacles were located nearby. A black baseball cap was also found nearby.
This is an area used by mountain bikers on a daily basis and we would predominately ask any bikers who may have seen this gentleman at any time in the area or if anybody has any information that may assist Police with their enquiries to make contact on 101 and quote log number 182 .
