Approach

South east of 2.31. On the track climbing towards Santo level with 2.35 entrance descend 30m down the scree to a large snow pile in a corner.

Entrance

2m wide crawl in low entrance in small cliff face, behind and overhung by snow.

Description

A mine passage, with some water, which continues for 250m before ending abruptly after a climb up a boulder slope. Various side passages remain unexplored.  
 
 (1979) Description: A muddy pool in walking passage leads to a chamber and the entry point of 2.35 in the roof on a bend. The first passage off on the left leads to a. 20m pitch and blind workings. The second left chokes, but in the following chamber with the three ways on the pitch below the wooden ramp on the left can be descended for 8m to a mine level. A loose slope between beams can be descended, with several short vertical sections, for 40m. This steeply descending passage (once an ore shoot) is very loose and ends in a large level with railway lines.
 
This level is complex and can be followed to a very large chamber with several unexplored ways on.
