Saithaelwyd lies in the community of Whitford in the county of Flintshire. It is located at Ordnance Survey national grid reference SJ16707660. The mine is recorded in the CPAT Historic Environment Record as number 18196 and this number should be quoted in all correspondence.

Carboniferous Limestone.

Smith (1921) records a whim shaft to the south-south-east of Saithaelwyd Cottage, which could refer to the shaft in woodland at SJ16747656. To the south-east if it, a second shaft remains on the edge of the woodland and old mine workings at SJ16777650. The area was worked by the Holway West and Holway District Mines also. Shafts run southwards to the Grange Quarries.
