Not all resource deposits are visible from above ground. Many precious resources are located underground and while they’re usually near cliff sides, only a specialist can find and mark them.
Time to build the Geologist’s Hut and send out our Geologists.
To construct the Geologist’s Hut, our settlement has to be on Town-Level (). As soon as the construction has finished, two Geologists will move in and will start to search for underground deposits. We can direct their search area via a focus point.
After they found a deposit, the Geologist will place a sign at the location indicating how rich the deposit is; they range from low over medium to high. We can now place a mine near the deposit to exploit it.
The respective mine building has to at least be on Town-Level () before it offers a mining entrance and its workers are able to make use of the underground deposits.
