First Draft of the Computer Animation of Maenofferen Slate Mine

Three slate extraction sites are being recreated through computer animation as part of the 'Atlanterra' project. The surveys of Maenofferen, Blaenau Ffestiniog, which is an example of an underground slate quarry, (NPRN: 400427) were carried out in October 2010 and a request for information was made in order to find out additional information about the history of this particular mine.


The first draft of the animation has been completed, and Investigator Spencer Smith is working with See 3D, the company producing the animation, in order to ensure that the finished product is as accurate a representation as possible of this important slate mine.
