Jim English was part of a small syndicate who mined alluvial material at the Ivy and Victoria leases in 1949, processing the ore at a plant erected it is assumed at the site. Mining soon ceased. According to maps, the mine was 500 metres west of the Stuart Highway, with the Jump-Up mine about 200 metres south, and Brannelly's mine 200 metres west. The location could not be confirmed, and the Mindat map is approximate.

The Ivy pegmatite has intruded deeply weathered tabular amphibolite, with near surface gypsum and dolomite in the overlaying clayey soil. Wolfram and tin was mined in the early 1950's. Kewanee Australia Pty Ltd tested the pegmatite in 1972, but found nothing economic.
