Geocache Description:

This little mine was found by me and sarlander when we were out caching, and thought it was well worth a cache! The cache is a cache and dash with the cache being 350ft from the parking co-ords.

The cache is placed at Nancegollan mine, it was in operation between 1853 and 1870. The mine was fairly unproductive the only record of output being 6 Tonnes of black tin in 1854. The narrow lodes were thought to carry cassiterite, wolfram, pyrite and fluorspar but not sufficiently rich to support deep mining. We hope you enjoy looking around the engine pumping house as much as we did!
