During the first few days, the mines are closed due to some accident by Joja Corporation. When it is open, mining becomes available to the player. Each level adds +1 efficiency with the class tool (Pickaxe).
Mining experience is gained from a number of sources. The most common is breaking nodes or stones, but the experience depends on a number of factors such as the professions one has, the location of the stone or node, the type of stone or node, and whether a special items was spawned from the stone. It also might be possible to get mining experience from opening treasure chests in the mine (25 + mine level), although this has not been confirmed in game.

Diamonds begin appearing at level 50 in the mines, at approximately 1 in 500 chance of appearing in place of a stone. For every level after level 50, frequency increases by .000016 per level. This makes for a .0028 chance for diamond to appear in place of a stone at floor 100 (1.2 in 500 or 7 in 2500), and ultimately a .003104 chance for diamond to appear in place of a stone at floor 119 (1.552 in 500 or 194 in 62500).
