Favourite Mine is a free mine which worked coal seams in the Pennant Group (middle Upper Coal Measures) via a drift. It is distinguished by a small carving of St Kieren, patron saint of Cornish miners, which was produced in 1976 by Vanilla Beer. The carving is on the rock face to the left of the drift entrance.
