A small area of shafts and spoil mounds remain grassed-over to the north of the Pentre Halkyn to Babell Road at SJ19557230. The workings appear to have run north to south, being visible as a line of old shafts. Any workings to the south of the road have been lost to the Pantypwll Quarry. Grainger's Vein according to Smith (1921, 64) was worked in the same area.
