This mine was formed by the amalgamation of Tolcarne and Rose Cliff Mines and was later renamed to New Wheal Rose. It worked three lead-bearing lodes in the area between the cliff edge at Tolcarne Sands and Whitegate Road. Two of the lodes, about 400 yards apart, trend NW and crop out in the cliffs. The third lode trends ENE and crosses the others inland. According to Hamilton Jenkin, this area was worked from shafts in the Tolcarne section of the mine, earlier known as Wheal Narrow. Dines, however, notes that development appears to have been mainly on adit level, about 150 fm on the NW-trending lodes, from the cliffs inland, and about 50 fm on the ENE-trending lode, from the end of the drive on the more westerly of the NW-trending lodes. Perhaps this refers to the Rose Cliff section of the mine, which otherwise cannot now be identified.
