Probably late C19. Slobbered killas rubble with granite quoins, bob wall of
granite blocks, window arches and upper stage of chimney of polychrome
brick. Rectangular plan on east-west axis, with bob wall to east,
foundations of former winding drum in front of this, and circular chimney
attached at south-west corner. Smaller building than the associated pump
engine house, with round-headed openings including driver's window in bob
wall (wall beneath this collapsed) and small cylinder door in rear wall.
Vertical tie-plateat west corner of north side. Intact tapered cylindrical 2-
stage chimney with a cornice. Foundations of winding drum partly
dilapidated. Functional partner to pump engine house approx. 50 metres to
the north-east (q.v.), forming an interesting group on a conspicuous site
close to the road. One of a series of mines exploiting the Great Flat Lode.
