In 1852 Poldice Mine was amalgamated with Carharrack Mine and Wheal Maid and worked as St. Day United Mine.

Poldice was both the richest mine in Gwennap and the last to close down (in 1873). It had gradually switched from tin to prolific copper production during the last quarter of the 18th century.
