You can move the mine once it's been restored. In the mine you will see dirt, stone and rocks together with picks, dynamite and the TNTs which you have got from your trains, zoo decks, or cash purchases.

- 1 of each artifact in the collection = 4 or 5 T-cash
- 2 of each artifact in the collection = 7 T-cash

Inside the mine you will see a blue box called "Warehouse". Your ore will be stored in the warehouse where you can see how much of each type you have. You can sell your ore as well, but that's not a good idea. Your warehouse has unlimited storage. Once smelted into an ingot, however, the ingot is stored in the barn.
Ore is taken from the warehouse when smelting ingots in the Foundry. You need five ores to make an ingot.
Mine Tile Types
|Clay||Mining this gives you clay which is used to produce items in the Plastics Factory, Doll Factory, Perfume Factory and Kitchenware Factory.
Note: Only use picks to mine it because dynamite, TNT and explosive boxes will destroy it. Starts appearing from level 58.
|The clay will be lit up if you clear a tile near it. Be careful not to destroy it.|
|Dirt||Takes 1 hit to remove. Save Dynamite and TNT for stone. Sometimes dirt and stone contain ores, gems, dynamite, picks, etc.|
|Stone||Takes 2 hits from picks or dynamite to remove it.|
However TNT can remove stones in 1 hit.
|It's best to use TNT to clear areas with many stone tiles.|
||Can't be removed. Usually valuable goods can be found in areas with many rocks. Look for patterns and mine carefully to avoid wasting tools.|
|Explosive Box||It explodes if hit with any mining tool. It removes a big area of tiles around it, and can set off a chain reactions with other explosive boxes nearby.|
|Tips for Explosive Boxes||Explosive Box Range|
The ideal way would be to remove all tiles on your way down, so you don't miss any hidden treasures. However, tools are limited so you have to use tools effectively while mining. Also there are hidden holes which often hide mine goods. Another thing to note is anything that reaches the top of the mining screen that you've extracted will automatically be collected, so you don't have to worry about losing them. The Message in a Bottles do not automatically collect, you must select these to collect the reward.
Note: There's a new booster for the mine called 'See the Light' which makes ore and artifacts from the darkened areas in the mine visible. Save a lot of mining tools, so you can make the most of the booster.
|Tips for using Picks||Pick Preview|
|Picks remove 1 tile at a time.
|Tips for using Dynamite|
|Dynamite removes 1 row of tiles at a time.
|Tips for using TNT||Example using TNT|
|TNT removes a square of 3x3 tiles (8 tiles around it).
Here you can watch a short tutorial of how to work yourself through the mine using the different tools.
You will soon find your own strategy that works best for you.
A helpful Tutorial on Extracting Clay
Hiring Dealer for Ores
A great way to get ores is from hiring the dealer while he's on sale (72 Tcash for 10 Days).
- You can buy 13 bronze/silver ores or 9 gold/platinum ores every hour from the dealer.
- Search back and forth between 2 types of ore until you get either 9 or 13 of the ore you need.
- Using the dealer you might not even have to mine at all, unless you want artifacts or demand is of Mining Task in Regatta.
