Worked first for copper from 1811-1819 by burning copper rich peat in Maulagow bog below the mine. Mining began for manganese and iron in 1840 and continued sporadically until 1882 with a brief resurgence in 1909-1910 corresponding to a surge in metal prices.

A well preserved (albeit heavily overgrown) engine house and overgrown opencast/surface stope remain.
