A copper mine. Also known as the Red Bluff Mine. This mine sits half way up a steep bluff of red quartzite. The quartzite is cross-cut by numerous quartz veins and the copper mineralisation is hosted by these veins.

It should be noted that "Wheal" is Cornish for mine so the correct locality name probably should be Wheal Turner and not Wheal Turner Mine or mines. Cornish miners were the original miners here.
