As for the possible location, I could find the following of the same name:
- a village in Jhunjhunu, Rajasthan
- a city in Dhar, Madhya pradesh
- a village in Jind, Haryana

Would it now be possible to pin down the location of the mint?

It s located halfway between Narnaul and Jhunjunu. It is in the copper mine area of Shekawati and according Irfan Habib, (An Atlas of the Mughal Empire) in 1595 a mint for copper.

Digging through some old auction lots online, I also came across a couple of specimens of Jahangir from the same mint.

So there is hope that coins of Akbar and may be Shah Jahan if not the later rulers of this mint would one day come to light..........
