Lead (1886-1913)

The Moel-y-crio Mine worked the western end of the California Vein, which runs through Carboniferous Limestone.

Evidence remains as shafts and mounds spread over a large area interspersed by the housing settlement of Moel-y-crio. One large shaft is fenced off at SJ19956970, and earthworks surround Mount Villas at SJ20206975. The Central Halkyn Mining Company incorporated Moel-y-crio Mine from 1901-1906, when they mined down shaft inclines (Smith 1921).
