The Quarry consists of a large area with a wide selection of rocks and mining nodes that are randomly generated. Each day there is a chance that new rocks and nodes will be generated.
You will gain access to the Quarry upon completion of the Crafts Room in the Community Center which rewards you with the Bridge Repair. The bridge is located east of The Mines and the Adventurer's Guild. If the Community Center was sold to the Joja Corporation and turned into the Joja Warehouse, you will instead acquire the Bridge Repair and subsequent access to the Quarry once the "Bridge" has been purchased from the Joja Community Development Form for 25,000g.
The Quarry itself can be home to every ore and gem in the game. However, stones containing valuable items like Iridium Ore or Prismatic Shards are much rarer and you may have to wait several seasons for new ones to spawn.
Each day new rocks and nodes will spawn, so to prevent valuable spawns from being blocked by existing rocks, it is wise to keep the quarry entirely cleared.
Unlike using bombs in the mines, bombing the quarry destroys rocks and ore nodes, leaving only stones to collect. The ore from ore nodes is completely destroyed, and cannot be collected. Bombs do not destroy any gem nodes (including the Gem Node and Mystic Stone) in the Quarry.
