During the first four days of the game, The Mines are closed due to a landslide caused by the Joja Corporation. After 4 days, you will receive a letter in the mail saying that Joja Corp. has cleared the landslide, and you will have access to The Mines.

Different rock types give different numbers of experience points. While generic rocks inside The Mines provide no experience bonus on their own, if coal is dropped, you are awarded 5 experience points (except in the case of the two gray rocks pictured below). No other "extra" drops from breaking rocks inside the Mines award experience points.
Experience level is increased immediately upon breaking a rock/boulder/node, but the "level up" window doesn't appear until after going to sleep.
The Geologist profession gives the specific gem nodes a 50% chance of spawning an additional gem. If this happens, then the amount of experience gained for each node is reduced.

All nodes (other than the Geode Nodes) may be found in the Skull Cavern or Quarry. The quarry on the Hill-top and Four-Corners Farm Maps can spawn geode nodes and the 4 ore nodes (copper, iron, gold, iridium). Copper and Iron nodes may be found in the Quarry Mine and in random dungeon levels in The Mines.

Diamond Nodes 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 a diamond node to appear in place of a stone at floor 100 (1.2 in 500 or 7 in 2500), and ultimately a .003104 chance for a diamond node to appear in place of a stone at floor 119 (1.552 in 500 or 194 in 62500).
The chance for Gem Nodes to appear is very small, but is slightly increased by Mining Skill level and Daily Luck. The chance for Mystic Stones to appear is also increased by Mining Skill Level and daily Luck.
Certain cooked dishes will temporarily increase mining level.

- See: The Mines
- See: Skull Cavern
- See GameLocation::breakStone in the game code.
- There are 2 different code sections to assign coal to a rock outside the mine. One is breakStone, a 5% * (1+(.005*MiningSkill)) chance of a rock giving coal which does give the +5 bonus. The other is onStoneDestroyed, a 3.5% chance for coal that doesn't give bonus XP. From a player's view, the game will randomly give 6 XP sometimes for coal dropping rocks, and sometimes just 1 randomly. Prospector causes breakStone to roll twice for the coal drop, while it doubles the chances for onStoneDestroyed to 7%.
- 1.0: Introduced.
- 1.1: The Blacksmith profession now increases the value of metal bars by 50%, up from 25%.
- 1.4: Fixed Prospector profession not applied to rocks destroyed in the mines.
