Snowdonia National Park has a study commissioned by the National Trust to record and consolidate the site, it's here and well worth a look. There's a nice view from the air and a key showing the buildings. The mine buildings of Berth Lwyd and New California are all listed structures, and the mill is the largest surviving of it's type. There's an interesting historical summary of the mine here at the Mindat site.
These photos were taken late last October, before the winter set in. I've a feeling the next photos of the mine on here will have snow in them!
