It was a Tin producing mine, this mine abandoned in the first world war due to financial and man power problems in 1915, but was opened again shorty after as ventilation to the reopened wheal kitty mine, but closed again in 1930 never to open again. The main pumping shaft and many other ruins remain.

The cache is a small locktype tupperware box, that has a some room for small objects. Please be carefull as it is a well used path at times.
