Mining is an activity which involves using the pickaxe on the stones, obstacles, and rock spots throughout the valley to collect resources and valuable gems.

Resources and gems are used to make refined materials, furniture, and other items through crafting. They can also be sold for Star Coins or gifted to villagers to raise Friendship.

How to Mine

Each biome has mining nodes which can be mined by interacting with them while the pickaxe is equipped. A mining node will usually drop resources with each swing of the pickaxe, up to five times, and the final swing of the pickaxe may drop a gem. Each swing of the pickaxe consumes 40 energy. There's a rare chance when mining that Onyx will drop, which is a rare resource used to craft pickaxe polish. Pickaxe polish guarantees receiving a gem from each swing.

Energy Cost

Main article: Energy

Each swing of the Pickaxe requires Energy.png 40. Each rock node typically requires 2-5 swings to mine, which requires between 80-200 energy.

Villager Companions

When reaching level 2 Friendship with a Villager, they can be assigned a Role. Villagers who have been assigned the Mining Role will gain extra Friendship for every node mined. They also have a chance to drop the last item mined before the node is exhausted while they're following. Extra materials they produce will be dropped on the ground, and can be picked up by running over them.

Each level of friendship increases the rate which extra materials will drop. It's not only effective for leveling up Friendship with these characters, but extremely helpful for offering bonus materials when mining. Be sure to always bring a Companion along when mining!

Gems

Gems are rare minerals what can be found by mining nodes with the pickaxe.

Each gem also has a "shiny" version which is larger and sells for 4x more coins. Sometimes nodes will have gems appear on them, and sometimes the gems will not appear until mined.

There are 2 largely overlapping categorizations related to Gems: Gems and Minerals. Minerals include all of the following listed in the table below. Gems include all of the following listed in the table below, with the exception of Vitalys Crystal, which only counts as a Mineral. Although Crystal is also a byproduct of mining, it is not categorized as either a Gem or a Mineral.
