Mining is one of the essential ways to break blocks and to grow your Island in Castaways. It is the act of using a tool to break a block.

How to Mine[edit]

The player needs to start by Crafting a Pickaxe or Stone Sledgehammer. Certain tools are needed to mine certain blocks, otherwise the item will not drop when broken.

Tools Required to Break Blocks[edit]
