The eastern part of this area has impressive large hillocks and open cuts. Features include a small mine complex with large hillock, ruined coe, small buddle dam and an access track. At the upslope end of the site is a modern pond (possibly a re-used mine feature) and leat, with two possible mine water storage or ore-dressing ponds nearby. The western part has been extensively reworked for gangue mineral leaving deep open cuts and hillocks, remains left by 20th century working. Surface interest here includes ruined footings of a calcite processing plant with buildings, small dressing floor, loading platform access tracks and a chimney flue with the base of a small circular chimney.
