The Dogpit Vein is one of a cluster of small veins that run close to the China Rake, within the area of Carboniferous Limestone with chert beds.

The only remaining evidence of workings are the shafts, mounds and tailings that cover the entirety of the Halkyn Mountain. The workings are difficult to differentiate from adjoining setts.
