DESCRIPTION:

Partially natural shaft descends for 50m. At the base of the shaft was an intricate system of mine workings. Along the main passage there was another shaft about 10m deep, with no continuation. Other shafts in the area were mine workings. The mines were apparently once worked by a small number of Englishmen who mined for blende and lived in the cabana de los Ingleses.
