Mines

There are nine types of mines on Clone Earth that allow you to mine various gemstones (sapphire, amethyst, ruby, emerald, diamond, amber, Elverion stone, and Portalin stone) and to mine a quantity of gold every day (except for the amber mines, Elverion mines, and Portalin mines). If you love the shine of precious metals and stones and do not mind trading them for a good profit, you should get a mine, and maybe even more than one….

Types of mines

For more information on the type and quantity of mined stones, the amount of gold being leached and the nominal value of the mines, see the "Cost / Profitability" page.

Developing an amber mine, you can find a very rare specimen - an amber stone with a drop of blood of an ancient dragon frozen inside it. The chance of finding such a stone is 1 in 10,000.

Elveron stone mines are only available on the game server Анклав "Anclave".

The "Portalin" stone mines are only available on the game server Метрополия "Metropolis".

After buying any mine in an auction it cannot be sold to other players, but the mined stones are available for sale on the commodity exchange.

Mining

Clones of artisan or higher social status can mine. To do this, the clone must be educated as a geologist at the University. The cost of education is 3 gold.

The right to develop a mine (for 120 days) can be bought at the Auction of mines. New mines found by state geologists of Clone Earth are going in there.

The right to mine can be purchased either for gold coins or for silver or gold eggs. Amber, Elveron, and Portaline stone mines can only be purchased for gold coins.

Mining each mine requires the expenditure of 6 endurance units per day. If the clone-owner of the mine does not have enough stamina, no production is made on that day, but the mining period is still reduced by 1 day. Don't forget to keep up your stamina in the Refectory.

Recovered gold is credited to the game account daily at the calculated time. Gemstones may not arrive on a daily basis (it depends on the type of the mine). When found, they go into the inventory of the clone-owner of the mine.

After 120 days of work, the mine is considered fully exhausted and disappears.

The use of gemstones

Gems can be sold in the Trade Guild if you have the right to trade there (clone status peasant or higher).

Warning. In order to transfer stones from one clone to another in your account (for example, to sell them), you must build a Vault.

You can also find the following uses for gemstones (basic possibilities):

Sapphire, amethyst, ruby, emerald, diamond

  • Exchange for a resource at the Changer's shop (subject to appropriate state reserves).
  • Make jewelry at the Jewelry Factory, if the clone owns it.
  • Expand the hunting grounds in your Principality.
  • Use to purchase certain types of securities at the Auction.
  • Use to make Magic Sun Plate, Magic Rain Plate, and Moon Plate game items in Magic Items.

Amber Stone

  • Use to make "Moon Plate" game items in Magic Items.
  • Use dragons in your Principality to build an amber cave (for example, you need more than 100,000 amber to build the largest cave).
  • Use to build "Take-off and Landing Grounds" for dragons in your real estate.

Elveron Stone

  • Use to make a powerful magical artifact "Dragon Amulet" to increase the flair of dragons.
  • Use to build "Take-off and Landing Grounds" for dragons in your real estate.

Portolin Stone

  • Use to build Portals in your settlement.
  • Use to transport resources between servers through Portals (requires 50 "Portalin" stones for each transport).
