Carboniferous Limestone.

The 1st edition OS map marks a disused Leadmine at SJ08308090, being the area of Gop Farm. A shaft is mapped in overgrown woodland. A second shaft at SJ08708050 can be located in the woodland on the slopes of Gop Hill. Gop and Dyserth Castle (SJ060799) were probably only trials worked by the same company. A shaft can be located on the edge of woodland at SJ06857975. The area also has a series of natural caves. Gop Hill caves and cairn form a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Documentary evidence remains of 13th/14th century leases of mines in the area.
