A Coal mine is a Resource Generator that exists on all generation one islands. Coal mines are a generative source ofCoal which is the most important resource in the game and used for Smelting. Island owners can be upgrade their coal mine to allow other players to use them while earning Coal passively.
How to Use
To use your Mine you must first Stake your Island. Right click on the Minecart at the front of the coal mine in order to send it in. After 24 seconds the minecart will return with a block of Coal Ore inside it. By destroying the block of Coal Ore using a Pickaxe the player can obtain a piece Coal.
Upgrading your Coal Mine
When the coal mine runs out of coal, you can upgrade it to the Level 2 Coal Mine for a payment of 1000 Palm Wood and 2500 Stone. When you upgrade your mine it will be unavailable for 24 hours. The level 2 coal mine refreshes with more Coal at 4PM PST every day. Upgrading the coal mine to level 2 also allows anybody to use it, even if they do not have permissions on your Island. The owner of the island will passively receive coal every time somebody uses their Level 2 Coal Mine. It will build up in the generator chest next to the mine.
