Bwlchglas Lead Mine (United Kingdom)

The mine was developed on two veins possibly associated with the Hafan fault. Recorded working at the mine is very late in relationship to other mines in mid-Wales. And was being worked on a number of occasions from 1882 to 1916, producing 1240 tons of lead ore and 99 tons of zinc ore.
The primary interest with this mine is the two cages reached via 2 SRT pitches.
