Fragment R1_A3


Skill: Combat

When a young Xunari gets rowdy, their parents tell them to go play in the dirt. When they grow up after doing that all the time, they might find that digging in the dirt and burrowing underground can come with some fun rewards! However, this can come with dangers: Any colonist who goes mining might come back with a small injury!

Any colonist from any colony, unless they are bedridden or nursing, may go mining. Examples of mining include digging in the dirt, burrowing underground, or investigating potential ore pockets.

Tip:  If it's hard to tell what one is doing, feel free to give a brief explanation in your Comment along with your regular leveling form.

If your colonist is equipped with a Pickaxe, please clearly state that they are using it! This gives the possibility of an extra item!

Please ensure all Focus colonists have Combat initialized. Otherwise, the system will read the combat skill as very low and will reduce the output, which might mean you get nothing!
Mining usually results in up to three items, but there is always the chance for failure, especially with low Combat modifiers.


  • Focus Colonists: Minimum 7 experience, including at least one background.
  • Minimum Focus Colonists: One.
  • Maximum Focus Colonists: Three.
  • Focus colonists must depict mining/digging/burrowing/investigating ore/other actions you would expect during a mining expedition.
