As with all walks of this nature please pay due regard to the weather conditions and wear appropriate clothing and footwear, be careful to leave enough time to return safely in daylight. Snowdonia has an extremely high rainfall and mist and low cloud can come down very quickly. Be especially careful when exploring the upper parts of the mine as there are several opencuts/crevasses on the mountainside which are unfenced and many feet deep. On no account venture underground unless you are with a properly qualified guide.
