A small tin mine south of Nancledra, first worked around 1788 under the name of Baldhu Mine. The sett comprised several lodes of presumably north-easterly trend that were initially worked from shallow shafts sunk on the backs of short adits driven into the hill on the western side of the valley south of Nancledra. In 1887, it was considered to the restart the workings under the name of New West Wheal Reeth, after a local miner had passed through rich tin ground while driving an adit on the main lode. The property was subsequently inspected by Capt. John James of Redruth, and recommended as a very fair speculation. Though, no progress seems to have been made thereafter.
