First discovered by collectors Lindsay Greenbank and Mike Sutcliffe in an abandoned 19th century limestone quarry during the early 1970's, the Rogerley is to date the only mine operated on a commercial basis solely for specimen recovery in the UK. Operation of the mine was taken over by UK Mining Ventures in 1999.

The principal workings are an adit extending northward along the Greenbank vein at the High Flats horizon of the Great Limestone. Specimens of green fluorite, often associated with galena have been recovered from discontinuous mineralized flats on both the east and west sides of the vein.

Major pocket zones encountered at the mine to date include:

The Black Sheep Pocket Zone - 1999 to 2003
- The Birthday Pocket - 2001
- The Dipper Pocket - 2002 to 2003

The Solstice Pocket - 2001

The West Crosscut Pocket Zone - 2001 to 2010
- The Corner Pocket - 2003 to 2004
-The Dodgy Bugger Pocket - 2006
- The Rat Hole Pocket - 2007 to 2008
- The Rat Tail Pocket - 2009 to 2010

The Jewel Box Pocket - 2007 to 2008

The Blue Bell Pocket - 2008 to 2009

The Crushed Zone - 2010

Penny's Pocket Zone - 2011 to 2013
- The "Weardale Giant" - 2012

The Bluebirds Pocket Zone #1 - 2013 to 2014
The Bluebirds Pocket Zone #2 - 2014 to 2015

Since 2017 Rogerley mine is operated by UK Mining Vetures Ltd. (Ian Bruce):

The Bluebirds Pocket Zone #2 - finished in November 2017

The blasted pocket - November 2017

The Wolfie´s Pocket Zone (which contained two major pockets) - December 2017 to February 2018

The Beadle pocket - October 2018 to January 2019
