An old silver mine, whose early history is not recorded. It was reworked from 1853 until 1860. During this time, the old dumps were picked over for uranium, which, at that time, was mainly used to dye glass. The sett was later included with the St Michaelis Mine at Annaberg.
From 1947 until 1957, the mine was worked for uranium again. The deposit was opened up by three shafts, two of which were those of the old mine (Uranus I Shaft = Shaft 21a, Uranus II Shaft = Shaft 21b). The grid reference marks the approximate position of Shaft 21b.
