location map of mines and caves in wales

Wondering if anybody knows if there is an interactive map for Wales, like the one made for the DCA cave registry around the peak district?

It has helped me a lot to find mines local to the area I am in when out and about the peaks as i am always on the lookout for holes to jump in and explore (so much so the boot of my car is unusable for underground gear now taking up residence in it!

I am due to visit wales this weekend and plan on visiting a few mines, particular slate mines similar to moel fferna which i visited back in february and blew my mind scale-wise compared to what i am used with my local lead mines in the peak district.

Any help or suggestions on good mines to visit which require minimal SRT and rope work would be much appreciated. I don't mind a little SRT but there are a couple of guys with me that have 0 rope experience so would prefer to keep everyone safe and in their own comfort zone.

You could enter lead or other mineral.
