As of 1952 this mine included the Carlos and Addison Shafts.

The North Victory Adit allowed haulage trucks to enter the mine via an incline. The intersection at its end led to the Victory mine to the south and Deardorff complex to the north. In all, dozens of miles of mine tunnels were accessible. This tunnel has been gated to protect bats. (Ref: Gill Montgomery, 1987 visit).

Hastie's exposed the southern workings of this mine in the mid 1980's.
