Miner  G

Historical background

In medieval times ore seeking begun with looking for an ore vein by dowsing-rod. Dowsers would walk over a certain terrain looking for ore vein, when the rod trembled they knew they found ore (the force of an ore vein moved the rod). At that spot excavation of ore would begin. Vertical shafts were excavated first. On the surface above the shaft they would construct eaves with a pulley, and with a rope and wooden or wicker baskets they would haul the ore to the surface. Later on vertical shafts would be connected with horizontal corridors.

Work day in medieval mine would last 10 to 12 hours. Darkness and high moisture, coldness, dust and inadequate ventilation of the mines was everyday life for our and other European miners. Miners usually worked in pairs with very simple tools, a hammer and a wedge, and the underground was illuminated with oil-lamps. With these simple tools one miner would daily pick only 3-4 cm of rock in depth. It is presumed that 30 miners worked daily, and they could excavate about 10 tons of ore that contained 5 kilograms of silver.

How does it work?

Find an ore deposit, click on it. A standard roll determines if you find anything. Ore deposits have a cooldown time.
