Ting Tang Mine worked lodes in the northern part of the West Clifford United sett. Most of its numerous shafts are not identifiable today. The grid reference marks a dump that is open to collectors after paying a small fee.

From 1816 to 1847, the mine produced 40,240 tons of 8.5% copper ore. According to Dines, however, it was also a major tin producer before 1810.
