A mine in the small valley south of Sevenstones, which worked three more or less ENE-trending lodes. Although the lodes reputedly carried tin and copper ores, Dines notes that only tin and tungsten ores occurred in the dumps and there are also no records for any copper ores raised by this mine. The grid reference marks one of two overgrown shaft dumps that remain in a field south of the A390 road.

In 1900, 1903 and 1905-1908, the mine produced 9 tons of black tin and 3 tons of arsenic.
