A small tin mine which was started around 1830. In 1836, it was amalgamated with other small mines in the area to form the Cornwall Great United Mines. After this group was dissolved a few years later, it lay idle until 1847, when it was amalgamated with nearby Wheal Prosper to form South Phoenix Mine.

The mine worked on Greenhill Lode, an EW-trending lode which is hosted in granite. It was opened up from North Shaft (Hazeldine's Shaft), the location of which is marked by the grid reference.
