The Pant-yr-hwch Vein was worked between the Glol Mine (PRN 18079) and the Brindigri Mine (PRN 18011). The early workings of the Glol Mine were on a sett apparently half as mile to the west of Glol Farm (Smith 1921). Three shafts lie in the woodland running south from The White House at SJ11707850, SJ11707810, SJ11707790. Two shafts can be located on the farmland at SJ12407860 and SJ12707860. To the east of the Maes Achwyfan cross-roads, shafts remain in the vicinityof Buarth-y-wacco at SJ11307880. An adit level was driven to the south of Plas-Uchaf towards the Buarth-y-wacco Shaft. Further south the workings belong to the Garreg Mine (102779).
