Is there a reason why I can't find any images or information about the mine workings in Scoredale?
I visited the area in 2015 and there is a vast amount of workings and open adits dotted around the valley.

Geology: the study of rocks & similar substances (minerals n such) that make up the Earth''s surface. Minerals: are the building blocks of rocks. They are a naturally occuring,inorganic, solid, crystalline substance which has a fixed structure. (and some of them are really pretty)

Anything would be under the name of the individual mine, which often has an alternative name.

If you can find one on here, look for "all mines with [X] kilometers" to find any others.
If nothing, maybe an interesting project for you?

New mines can be added by any registered user, but please ensure as I say above they not already there under a different name.

Check Google for mine name and search here or web under name. e.g. https://www.mindat.org/loc-1477.html

https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHBD_en-GBGB907GB907&ei=9xflX4yZHb2R1fAPtO-7oAk&q=Scordale+mines&oq=Scordale+mines&gs_lcp=CgZwc3ktYWIQAzIECAAQHjoHCAAQRxCwA1DE9AZYxPQGYJ-HB2gBcAJ4AIABTIgBTJIBATGYAQCgAQGqAQdnd3Mtd2l6yAEIwAEB&sclient=psy-ab&ved=0ahUKEwjM8M-H1-ftAhW9SBUIHbT3DpQQ4dUDCA0&uact=5

Edit: A few more which are in Aditnow database.

It may be because it's on MOD land with restricted access. Murton, Hilton and Amber slightly to the west and north are on AditNow and Mindat. Spartylea put a mine plan for Scordale attached to Murton and there is a comment about the army blowing all access points, apparently done in the 1960's.

Three links to stuff you've probably already looked at.

(click image to open full size image in new window)

As has already been pointed out its a live MOD range with potential for unexploded ordnance, also not subject to CROW.
