When you arrive at the mines, you're looking for a fenced-off golden birdcage. Pin The Silver Mines Monument and examine and investigate it to determine that a silver canary was used to sit there as a memorial. After you've fully examined it, Sherlock will suggest that you ask someone in the area about it.

Whichever wardrobe option you are currently wearing, enter Concentration Mode and look at the people in the area—find someone that reads friendly or affable toward you. Speak to them with the Silver Mines Monument clue still pinned.

Once you've found the spot, you'll notice two men standing outside that you can eavesdrop on. Interact with the ear icon and choose to keep the following phrases:

  • Stole the canary.
  • Thrown into the sea.
  • Lost his family.
  • Poverty in Miner's End.

After you've successfully completed the eavesdrop, Sherlock will automatically put everything together and this case will be completed.
