There are a number of methods you can use to mine. At the very start of the game, you can bust open
rocks by kicking them repeatedly until you pick up Iron.
Making a Pickaxe
Iron can then be used to create a Pickaxe at a Blacksmith's residence. Then, you can mine rocks by picking away at cave walls or fallen minerals.
As they break into pieces, they will turn into another type of material like iron , coal , gems, and so forth.
Mining with a Mining Cart
However, if you would like to pick up minerals and grind them up in large quantities instead, you can take a mine cart full of them to a stonemill.
To use a mine cart, drop it onto a set of rails and push it from either side. You can double-click the cart to open it just like a bag,
but be aware that you can't take it off the tracks if it still has something in it.
Mines and Maps
Many different minerals are scattered throughout five different mines on Main Island. Different mines contain different minerals and some monsters as well.
You can find the following minerals in each mine:
|Supply Mine||Coal, Stone, Iron||Bomboria on Main Island|
|Worker's Mine||Coal, Stone, Iron, Diamond||South of Santerrain on Main Island|
|Surface Mine||Bronze, Silver, Gold||North-West Mountains on Main Island|
|Deep Mine||Mithril, Vanadium, Orihalcum||Middle of Main Island|
|Toxic Mine||Cobalt, Adamantium||Perditus on Main Island|
|Haunted Mine||Arcanium, Dark Iron||North-West Mountains|

Mining map cheat sheet submitted by *ANGRYPancake
An alternative to this is using Mining Maps:
Maps provide a randomly generated mine with walls for you to break through.
You will need either a Mining Hat or several Lanterns to see what you are doing.
The objective is to mine as much as possible before time runs out.
The walls take around 4 to 20 hits with a pick to break through.
To delve deeper look for the "V" put randomly in a wall on the floor you are on.
Depending upon the floor you are on you will get: Mining stone, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, and/or Event Coin(rarely) upon breaking a wall.
Once you have the mining stone that you want make your way to a stone mill in places such as the Mining Lodge in Bogenera or the Mining Guild in West Bomboria.
There you can mill your Mining Stone into any random mineral mentioned in the above table, with a chance to get nothing, per stone.
Making Mineral Dusts
However, there is a 10% chance that they can be completely ruined when turning into dust, so be careful!
Currently, aside from Jewels the only eligible mineral is the Huge Gold Nugget.
Becoming a Pro Miner
If you want to show off your pro mining skills then you should get the shiniest pickaxe!
It is located South of Santerrain on Main Island. Look for the Worker's Mine.
Once inside proceed to the anvil labeled "Graal Worker Tools".
You will be able to create the Graal Worker's Pickaxe among other prestigious tools.
The Worker's Pickaxe is functionally the same as a normal pick but with a different graphic and additional stats.
