|2835||General notes||The mine was located in the western slope of the terrace between Pigroot and Adams Gullies. The outline of the portal is still visible, however it is closed off/ The location is approximately 20m north of location #248. The mine does not show on the survey plan of location #248 produced by Mr G A Blaikie (surveyor of Gore) in 1943. It may well be that location #247 was constructed as a ventilation drive for location #248. Underground workings may still exist however no records have come to light at this time.|
