Your not even telling us where it is which makes it more difficult to point you in any specific direction.

Generally, mineral stats, Mining Journal, and press archives. Plus National Archives on line search on any known mining companies, historic maps for surface features.

If its not on here, as soon as you have some details it would be a good idea to add it. But beware alternative names.
