Wheal Bucketts sett lies beside the Redruth to Helston Road. Its nearest neighbours are Wheal Buller and Wheal Uny to which it is connected at adit and below.
Once accessible from two shafts on the sett, both now capped. A connection was proved from Wheal Uny and a couple of through trips were undertaken, however, the ground was very unstable and the connection was lost a month or so later. The adit level was explored and surveyed as was an upper level some 50 feet above adit.
