An antimony mine on a NE-trending lode that crossed the small valley south of Trewetha hamlet and is said to have been discovered while digging out badgers in 1809. The workings include a shaft and a cross-cut adit that connects to it at 10 fms below the surface, but there are no traces left at the surface. When the mine was reopened around 1907, it was found that some stoping had been done on adit level, but only little development at depth where the lode soon became poor.
There are no records of output.
5 valid minerals.
