This colliery had two pits, one was 180 metres north-west of the other, and they were linked by a tramway. Stott Dearden & Co., who in 1848 were also described as coke burners, were working the Lower Mountain Mine.

The ownership during the thirty years from 1854 was as follows:-
1854-1855 Stotts, Dearden & Lomax
1859-1860 Smallbridge Colliery Co
1865 Lomax, Dearden & Co
1869-1875 Lomax & Co.
1880-1885 Samuel Lomax & Co.

The mine had closed before 1890 and it was abandoned in the following year.
