Obvious mine entrance with railway sleepers in the entrance Entrance


The mine adit heads 25m south east, following the evidence of old railway lines, until a mined out chamber is encountered. The chamber is approx. 10m long x 5m wide and up to 20m high. A daylight shaft is obvious above and there is a lot of mine stemples and platforms in evidence. A short crawl down and under the northern wall, leads to a climb up (over stemples) that has not been explored, but is assumed to head up to the same daylight shaft.

Immediately opposite the entrance to the chamber is a continuation of the mine adit. This continues south east for 75m, passing a number of junctions, all of them blind.

Post trip survex work seems to suggest this passes about 5m from the Castillo - FT16 connection point.
