Mining is an activity available in Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories.


Entrance to the Mine

Going to the mines is the fastest way to earn much needed money to buy precious seeds and grow crops & flowers. The clock does not tick once you're inside the mine. So All you need is a hammer and a hoe.

The best method to dig for the next ladder is to dig the perimeter of the room, followed by the next row in. The ladder never seems to appear within a 1-square radius of the previous ladder.

Mining Tips

  • Bring lots of cooked food to replenish your stamina. 99 bread is great but expensive as you need to buy 3 units of flour and 1 of salt to make one bread. The cheapest way is to either make boiled eggs or fried eggs.
  • Upgrade your hammer and your hoe ASAP to Gold (maximum level). The upgraded hammer will take less of your stamina and the gold hoe can dig up to 6 squares at a time!
  • Use save/load trick to save your energy and supplies when you are faced with really large areas. (ie. some lower levels are huge: about 21 x 21...or more!)
  • The ladder usually appears 2 or 3 squares away from the wall.
