The Forest Mine

At the beginning of the game, access to the mine is blocked off. To unlock the mine:

screenshot
  1. Have Tina's House, Clement's Restaurant, and Rod's Cottage build. Tina's and Clement's are from Town Renovation Plan #2, and Rod's is from Town Plan #3.
  2. Find the hidden music sheets in their houses. Find Tina's first, Clement's second, and then finally Rod's hidden sheet.
  3. Buy the Doctor's House blueprints from Rebecca for 2400 G and construct the house using your farm workshop. The necessary materials are 3 Iron, 15 Small Lumber, 40 Lumber, and 65 Material Stone. You can buy Iron from Rebecca for 510 G each.
  4. Once you place the house and Klaus moves in, Aaron will tell you about the music sheet hidden in Klaus' house.
  5. Find the Boulder Dance sheet music on the first floor of the doctor's house and return back to Aaron to play it on the musical tree stumps: So-Mi-Do-Mi-Fa-Mi-So

If Aaron does not tell you about the music sheet in the Doctor's house then you have not completed the requirements yet. You must locate the music sheets that come before the one inside of Klaus' house.

The mine is just a large room with various items on the ground you can pick up. On the walls of the mine you will find three mining points. When you hit the mining points with your hammer you will receive a mined item. Each point can generate between two and five random items per day.

The three mining points are color-coded; blue, green, and red. The strength of your hammer will determine which mining point you can receive items from. The red point can only be hit with an Ultra Hammer, the green point by a Iron Hammer or Ultra Hammer, and the blue point by a regular Hammer, Iron Hammer, or Ultra Hammer. The red mining point has a greater chance of producing better items than the green or blue mining points.

Mined items do not have a Star Rank.

The number of items you receive from each mining point is set in the morning, but the type of item you receive is determined as you hit the point with your hammer. When you are looking for a specific ore or gem, save your game before you hit the mining point. If you don't receive what you're looking for then reload your save game and try again.

Blueprints and Cooking Recipes

You can also find blueprints for your workshop and recipes for your kitchen at the three mining points. The blueprints and recipes aren't mine point specific, but you have a better chance of finding cooking recipes at the blue mining point and blueprints at the red mining point. There are 15 blueprints and 63 recipes you can find at the mining points.

When you find all of the items from a group, the next group and its items can be found. For example, find all of the cooking recipes that belong to group 1 and then you can start to find the recipes that belong to group 2.
