  • Mining Guide

    Nov 07, 2020Mining ores and stone. If you plan on mining a lot, it helps a lot to specialize in the profession. This will make sure you can mine at the most efficint level, and are able to process the ores that you mine. Mining itself is simple, you hit a rock or ore, and it breaks. Some blocks take multiple hits, depending on the tool you are using.

    Open pit mines can be used in coal mining, and they are used extensively in hard rock mining for ores such as metal ores, copper, gold, iron, aluminum, and many minerals. In a open pit coal mine, the pit bottom would be the bottom mined coal seam elevation, since it is usually feasible to extract multiple seams when surface mining coal.
