As a four-wheel drive truck with a large red metal box on its flatbed rumbles into the gaping mouth of the Cononish mine, near Tyndrum in the west of Scotland, geologist Rachael Paul explains what's happening.

"They can carry explosives in there", she says.

We are heading into the access tunnel at Scotland's only gold mine.

Scotgold Resources has been developing mining work at this site since 2007.

And now the company is aiming to ramp up extraction and wants to develop new sites nearby.

By the end of this year, it aims to be extracting about 2,000 ounces (57kg) of gold monthly, worth more than £3m.
