Open workings and old shafts on the western flanks of the Graig relate to the Tan-y-graig Mine. The mine was probably worked out by the mid-19th century. Two shafts can be located in woodland to the east of the school at SJ19855680. A further two shafts lie to the south of these; one adjacent to the road at SJ19705675 and one at SJ19955645 on the limestone outcrop.
