Located 1.6 kilometres west of the Gift mine.
A number of people have been mentioned as lessees of the June Audrey Mine. A 1948 article names many of the major players on the field as part of the mine. Maybe more realistically, in 1950 it states it as Holben and Dunlop. In 1951, it was stated the lessees were the two Marrioti brothers (Angelo and Giovan), Francis James Holben, and Jack Dunlop. An un-named lease was applied for in November 1950 of 12 acres, about 0.75 kilometres west of the June Audrey Mine by Stanley George Camp, Robert John James, and Frederick John Camp.
Two main ore shoots (west and east), the west dipping steeply south, east dipping steeply north, both containing galena, cerussite, barite, and trace copper, in a greywacke host. The historic workings cover a length of 140 metres on the western shoot, while the main shaft was on the eastern shoot, down to 40 metres below the surface. From this stopes had been dug 37 metres east, and 30 metres west, at the 15 metre level. The mine produced 512 tonnes of lead and 166,587 g silver.
