Possible manganese mine.
At the end of 1906 a lease was drawn up for R J Lloyd Price and William Owen for the mining rights at Caefadog (together with Cwm Cottage, Nant yr Helfa and Rhydyfen) for one year (with provision for converting to 20 years in a year’s time) for a consideration of £20 p.a. with a royalty of 1s/ton (5p/ton) of manganese [GAS DAO: Z/DDD/3/22, 25]. (The lease also included the right to work graphite with a royalty of 1/10th of the value of graphite produced.)
