Closely adjacent to Providence Mines, in 1834 East Wh Providence, which worked a number of the same lodes, was recommended for inclusion into the Providence Mines sett by Captain Joseph Vivian.However, his recommendation appears not to have been acted upon (Hamilton Jenkin 1961)

Opened again in 1857 by a separate company to Providence Mines, the mine appears to have been badly run. Hamilton Jenkin records speaking to old miners in the 1920s who stated that "she was the worst laid-out bal [mine]" that they had ever known.

East Wh Providence produced 78 tons of black tin between 1863-71.
