Dinkum is the new survival game in which the players will build their towns on an island and craft different items for their survival. As you progress through the game, you’ll be required to collect the metal Ingots. The metal ingots can be collected with Mining and for mining you need specific tools.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to Mine in Dinkum.
How to Mine
In order to start the mining, you’ll have to get the mining license first. The mining license can be gotten at the start of the game. The 1st Level of mining can be gotten for 250 Permit points from Fletcher. After getting the Level 1 license, you’ll be able to get the Basic Pickaxe from John’s Goods store. The Basic Pickaxe will cost you 1200 Dinks and it can be used to mine the Tin Ores along with the rocks. Tin Ores can be crafted into Tin Bars that are used in many things.
To collect rare Ingots, you’ll have to get the Level 2 of Mining license. The Level 2 will cost 1000 Permit Points so, you’ll need to complete more milestones to obtain more permit points. You’ll be able to unlock this level later in the game. The 2nd level of mining license will allow you to craft the Copper Pickaxe at the Crafting Table. The required items to craft the Copper Pickaxe are the following.
- Basic Pickaxe
- 2 Copper Bars
To collect the rarest Ingots, you’ll have to get the Level 3 of Mining license. The Level 3 will cost 3000 Permit Points so, you’ll need to complete more milestones to obtain more permit points. You’ll be able to unlock this level in the late-game. The 3rd level of mining license will allow you to craft the Iron Pickaxe at the Crafting Table. The required items to craft the Iron Pickaxe are the following.
- Copper Pickaxe
- 2 Iron Bars
You can also unlock the Jackhammer tool for mining. This tool will speed up the late-game mining and you’ll be able to get it after John has a permanent store in the town. Jackhammer can be bought from an inventor that will visit the town after you have sold the Data Disks to Franklyn. The Jackhammer will cost 100,000 Dinks and several materials. The list of the materials is the following.
- 5 Old Springs
- 2 Hot Cylinders
- 1 Green Board
- 8 Iron Bars
- 1 Stone Grinder
These 4 Tools will help you mine all the necessary Metal Ingots in the game and turn them in to the useful items that you can use.
