Older mine of the Nenthead area, subsequently worked from the southerley branch of the Bloomsberry Horse Level (Brownley Hill Mine). At least 2 level portals can still be seen - one next to the road where it rounds the corner in Gudhamgill, and one higher up in the gill. The small amounts of dump material present are well grassed-over.
The deposits worked were a bifurcation of the Gudhamgill=Greengill=Bentyfield vein and flats in the Great Limestone associated with veins themselves.
Sphalerite was the dominant sulphide present.
