Massive galena and sphalerite have been reported from a vein "in the slate rocks below Wheal Castle", which places the occurrence on Kenidjack Cliff. The sulphides were associated with dolomite, and some specimens also contained minor quantities of goslarite, probably formed by decomposition of sphalerite (Carne, 1822).
