The mine is located approximately 1.25kms south of Halls Peak in Clarke Co, (note: Halls Peak is in Sandon Co.).

The mine operated as shafts, adits and opencut. The open cut encompassed the Devils Drop and Milking Cow deposits as well as the Dry & Wet Tunnels, Barkers shaft, WIndlass shaft and Twin Lodes.
