During its life the mine worked the land area of Lloyd's Cove Seam lying between the outcrop and the shore line. The area worked on a room and pillar system with pillar drawing near the outcrop which was quite small. The main deeps when the mine closed had only reached a depth of 860 feet from the mine entry.
In addition to the main level, the workings were connected by a level to a shore outcropping East off Swivel Point, driven approximately 300 feet from the surface. This level, which was about 300 feet long, connected with the main slopes driven on an angle of North 89 deg East.
This mine produced 17,748 long tons of coal during its active life.
