"To have all the effort and continued support for Geevor recognised in such a way is a great honour."
The stated aim of the tin mine, which is managed by Pendeen Community Heritage and employs 22 staff, is to conserve the heritage of Geevor, use the site for education purposes and create sustainable employment.
Geevor Tin Mine staff are now waiting to find out if the attraction will scoop another prize at the national awards later this year.
