Historical background

"...but by skill we can also investigate hidden and concealed veins, by observing in the first place the bubbling waters of springs, which cannot be very far distant from the veins because the source of the water is from them; secondly, by examining the fragments of the veins which the torrents break off from the earth, for after a long time some of these fragments are again buried in the ground.
Fragments of this kind lying about on the ground, if they are rubbed smooth, are a long distance from the veins, because the torrent, which broke them from the vein, polished them while it rolled them a long distance ; but if they are fixed in the ground, or if they are rough, they are nearer to the veins.
The soil also should be considered, for this is often the cause of veins being buried more or less deeply under the earth ; in this case the fragments protrude more or less widely apart, and miners are wont to call the veins discovered in this manner
'fragmenta'."
De re metallica, Georgius Agricola.

How does it work?

You go to your Instructor and ask for a task. You can only have one active task at any moment. If you are free to take a task the Instructor gives you an area name and a target. Go to that area, and use the Job Log on the ground. On success you find an ore deposit or a choppable tree.
