The Old and New Chwarel Las Veins are a branch of the China Rake, running east-west through Carboniferous Limestone and chert beds.

The only evidence of the mine workings are the shafts and spoil heaps which cover the area and some of the deeper shafts that are substantially capped at SJ19557138, SJ19637133 and SJ19877135. The area is littered with shaft-mounds and spoil.
