Mining is a skill used for obtaining ores. Miners or machinery need to be used to obtain ores.
Mining experience is gained from miners or machinery when they mine an ore. After researching the 3rd mining perk you can open geodes with a chisel for extra xp. These are currently the only two ways to gain mining xp.
Mining Machinery Edit
At the start, the player can buy miners in the Game shop as the first digger. Gradually, higher level machines will be available to craft and use. The ore from mining are used to sell to the shop for money.
Generally, higher tier machines just mine ores slightly better than lower tier ones, but this is not scaled to the amount of oil being used. Therefore running more lower machines tend to be more efficient for oil use.
|Machine||Oil||Ores mined||Mining Level|
In addition to ores, gems can also be found. You can start collecting gems once you buy the Gem Finder in the shop.
Every gem has a rarity depending on the tick rate:

Days to Obtain
Every Gem (except blood diamonds) will upgrade tools in the order above. Upgrading tools is much more valuable than selling them to the NPC market.
