Smaller mine of the London Lead Company in the Middleton area. Records show only 53 tons of lead concentrates between 1877 and 1894, but it was also worked for barytes, yielding 1808 tons and ironstone producing 1639 tons from 1882-1883.

The mine worked Holm Head Vein and High Dyke Vein, along with flats associated with the latter.

Also considered part of this mine was the adit known as Deputation Level (NY94722607)which was driven in the shale above the Three Yard Limestone. No veins proved productive at this horizon.
