The western workings on the Pantymwyn vein are visible as shafts in the fields to the east of the River Alyn at SJ19056450, SJ19056455 and SJ19206450. The shafts represent the earlier workings on the vein. Two levels were driven in to east bank of the River Alyn. The 'Great Level' begun in 1738 was driven in a south eastwards direction from SJ18906430 to drain the Pantybuarth Mines and a second level was later driven from SJ18856460 to drain the Pantymwyn Vein. The main mine site of Pantymwyn, Bryncoch and later the Mold Mines is located at SJ20106480.
