Dinkum is an Australian-inspired life simulator where you try to survive the harsh Australian Outback. The best place to find rare resources and unique items in Dinkum is the Mine, not to be confused with the Quarry. Unlocking Deep Mining requires the completion of multiple steps, and it can be tricky to open. Here is how to unlock Deep Mining in Dinkum.

To build the Mine Entrance, you must purchase the Deep Mine License from Fletch for 3,500 Permit Points. This license becomes available after you have purchased the Mining License Level 2, which unlocks once your Mining Skill is Rank 10. After buying the license, you will need to build the Mine Entrance Deed. Construction requires:

  • 10 Bags of Cement
  • 10 Old Gear
  • 1 Old Contraption
  • 2 Old Keys
  • 5 Tin Bars
  • 5 Copper Bars

The construction will also put your town in 250,000 debt. Construction will take a full day to complete. Once the Mine Entrance is built, you will need a Mine Pass.

A Mine Pass is a single-use item that allows you to enter the Deep Mine, and it is purchasable from John for 25,000 Dinks. This may seem expensive, but you can easily earn this back in the Deep Mine by finding Rubies and other rare resources to sell to John.

The Deep Mine is a high-risk, high-reward location with several unique resources and a chest to find that contains items not found anywhere else. Here is a checklist to remember before entering the Mine:

  • To maximize your time underground, enter the Mine in the morning.
  • Bring Old Keys. These can be used to unlock doors.
  • Bring food to restore energy when mining and health after getting attacked.
  • Empty your inventory.
  • Bring a Torch (or Mining Helmet) and multiple Pickaxes.
  • Put Rubies in the elevator to bring back to the surface with you at the end of the day.

Rubies are sold for between 50,000 and 80,000 Dinks, depending on their size. Collecting as many of these during your Deep Mine exploration is the best way to profit from each run. Keep an eye out for chests; these can contain unique items such as Mu Saddles and Hang Gliders.
