The monument comprises the remains of a 19th century lead mine 'New Minera Shaft' and includes its water-management and transport systems, extraction and dressing processes with their power systems. The extensive remains include a capped shaft, buddles, jig boxes, engine bases, and structures associated with the innovative vanning machinery. Timber structures such as launders and boxes are also well preserved on the site.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance and illustrate our knowledge and understanding of mining technology from a single period. Lead mines may be part of a larger cluster of industrial monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive. It is bounded by the fence line of the present property.
