Old copper mine (1846-1917).
Two main lodes ('Main Lode', 'South Lode') are immediately adjacent to the Hingston Down quarry.

Russell (1910): "Hingston Down Consols mine commenced working about 1846, and was for many years a large producer of copper ores. After being abandoned for a long time, it was reopened about 1904 by the Clitters United Mines Co. Ltd., since which date it has produced considerable quantities of tin, copper, wolframite, and arsenical pyrites, and also some fluor-spar."


Note on the mineral list:
Carpholite supposedly collected here in 1957 by Arthur Kingsbury (1906-68) is now considered unlikely and probably from Bohemia. This is one of a number of likely or definitely falsified Kingsbury localities.
