A small tin mine on the west side of the valley northeast of Treveal. The mine plan, dated 1844, indicates 11 NE-trending lodes, but only three of them were worked to some extent. An adit driven southeast from River Cove is indicated on the plan, but it does not connect to the workings; it was related to Treveal Mine instead. There are no traces of the workings left at surface. One of the five shafts indicated on the plan has been located in the field by Hamilton Jenkin. The grid reference marks its approximate position.
1 valid mineral.
