A trial adit of 662 feet that was driven for copper at Pant Y Gaseg just west of Bull bay in 1859. Around 1872 a second attempt was made, with a small shaft being sunk on the ridge.
A report in the Mining Journal of Sept 1872 notes that "....The copper is of the same description as Mona mine. We also saw some of the beautiful umber and ocrhe taken out in our presence. We were amazed at the Kaolinite [dickite]. It is our impression that this will be a great mine very shortly".
Altghough the Panty-gaseg Copper Mining Company issued 40 shares at £250 pounds each in 1872, the company was disolved in 1879. The area was operated again by another company called the New Cambrain Syndicate from 1906 to 1907.
