One of the few major mines in the Nenthead area NOT developed by the London Lead Co. It was developed from two levels, the Bloomsberry Horse Level (now known as Brownley Hill Low Level) and Brownley Hill High Level.
The veins worked include:
Carrs Vein, Wellgill Cross Vein, Brownley Hill Moss Cross Vein, West High Cross Vein, High Cross Vein, and Jug Vein, all basically N-S veins.

The others are E-W veins and are Brownley Hill North Vein, Brownley Hill Vein, Tatters String Vein, North Middle Vein, Middle Vein, and Sun Vein. The replacement orebody (flats) are east of Wellgill vein, associated with Middle Vein. There is also a small replacement area between Brownley Hill and Brownley Hill North Veins. Possibly associated with Tatters String, which runs parallel between the two main E-W veins. The alstonite came from the High Cross Vein.

At the time when high-grade lead ore was depleted the Vieille Montagne Zinc Company took over the lease in 1914 shifting operations to the extraction of zinc ore. The mine operated for VM from 1914 until 1936.

Extensive sections of the mine are still accessible from the Low Level but although the Great Limestone workings are in reasonable condition the access levels are mostly very poor and dangerous.
