Carboniferous Limestone.

A single shaft appears to the north of Foel Farm on the OS 2nd edition map, being the shaft now evident at SJ06547807. Much of the northern area of the Hillfort has been destroyed by quarrying. Large open cuts and levels appear to run in from the uppermost southern slopes of Y Foel, where several intersections of veins were worked for haematite, nickel, cobalt and pyrites.
