The surface mine contains two of tin, copper, iron and coal.

The Desert Mining Camp mine is located both on the surface and underground at the Desert Mining Camp in Kharidian desert. Accessing this mine requires part of the Tourist Trap quest to be completed and the area with adamantite and mithril requires completion of the quest and Wrought iron key.

First section map


The surface contains 8 rocks, slaves and Mercenaries.

First Section

First section is full of iron, copper and tin. To get to the lift platform the player must bribe the guard in the end with Tenti Pineapple. This must be done only once during the quest.

Lift platform

There are only item spawns, empty rock, few slaves and a mercenary and rowdy guard on this section. You can search the mining cart to hop on it and get transported to the next section.

Final section

Four paths in the final section of the mine.

When arriving with mine cart you'll face four paths.

Western path contains 6 Clay rocks and a jail with strange rocks and Bronze Pickaxes. The jail portion of the path, can only be accessed during the Tourist Trap quest (see Crude bed).

North-western path contains 6 Iron rocks and 6 Tin rocks.

Northern path contains 6 Coal rocks.

North-eastern path is the most interesting because it contains most Adamantite rocks in the game (6) of which, 5 are able to be mined and second most Mithril rocks (7). The Sturdy Iron Gate requires the Wrought iron key from Tourist Trap to enter.
