This page explains how to mine for ore in the mining nodes of Westown.

### Get a Hammer

In order to mine for ore, you need a hammer. To get one, you need to have Ludus upgrade your house. Ludus will give you a hammer for free the next day.

### Mine for Ore

There are mining nodes in the northern part of Westown. At first, you can only use the mining node near Ford's clinic and the mining node near the windmill in the southwest part of northern Westown. Just hit the nodes with your hammer to make ore come out.

### Upgrade your Hammer

If you ask Ludus to improve the effectiveness of your Hammer, you will be able to use the other mining nodes, and you will have a better chance of getting rare ore from the mining nodes.

The mining node in the southeast part of northern Westown can be used after you upgrade your hammer's effectiveness to level 2.

The mining node near the post office in Westown can be used after you upgrade your hammer's effectiveness to level 3.

If you upgrade the hammer's effectiveness to level 4 or 5, you will have a better chance of finding rare ore when mining.

### Wait Three Days

For the best chance of getting rare ore, wait three days before hitting a mining node again. For example, if you hit the mining node next to Ford's house on Monday, don't hit it again until Thursday.

### The Basement Mining Node

After you complete Farming Tips 3, you will be able to use a basement on your farm. The basement contains a high-level mining node.

### Ore Probabilities

The following tables show the probabilities of finding each type of ore from each mining node, depending on your hammer's effectiveness level and whether you have waited three days or not.

A = High probability

B = Medium probability

C = Low probability
