Victorian era copper mine dating from the 1840s. Records indicate an output of 229 tons of ore from 1844-1846. The mine was possibly revived between 1860-1865 but no output is recorded. A second revival took place in 1900-1906 but, again, no records of output exists.

There are 6 visible concrete capped shafts around the site along with a scattering of spoil heaps mainly on the cliff top. The adit at the bottom of the cliff is blocked with rubbish. There is a large opencut on the quartz mineralization where average crystals of quartz can be found (up to 3cm).

Well-crystallised arsenopyrite is quite common in the tips but it is typically completely enclosed in host rock and not free-grown.
