Mining Efficiency and Relative Increases

It is important to understand the relationship between miners, upgrades, and their impact on resource production. So let’s dive deep in a little bit!

Mining efficiency in Mr. Mine depends on the number of miners and upgrades owned by the player.

While each additional miner and upgrade provides a percentage-based boost, the relative increases diminish over time.

Upgrade #75%100%5.26%
Upgrade #85%105%5%
Upgrade #95%110%4.76%
Upgrade #105%115%4.55%

As you can see, the first miner contributes 5% of the base production, while the second miner increases production by 10%, resulting in a 100% relative increase. However, the third miner only adds 15% to production, a relative increase of 50%.

This diminishing pattern continues as players hire more miners and purchase upgrades.

Treasure Chests and Special Miners

As players delve deeper into the mineshaft, there is a chance to discover treasure chests filled with valuable quest rewards. These chests can be found at below 30km depths and offer bonuses that aid in-game progression, including:

  • Money
  • Timelapses
  • Buffs
  • Building Materials
  • Scientists
  • Minerals
  • Oil
  • Weapons

Super Miners

Super Miners, introduced as a major feature in version 0.40 of Mr. Mine, are powerful entities that enhance mining capabilities.

These special miners are obtained from Ethereal chests and offer various abilities and benefits, such as increased mining speed, higher isotope yield, buffs, and more.
