Gold Mines are deposits of gold from which Peasants or Peons can harvest this valuable resource and bring it back to one's base.

Human description

King Llane has sent many a surveyor into the hills and mountains throughout the kingdom in search of new deposits of gold. You may discover one of these sites, and find that there are still veins of the precious metal to be mined. Peasants can be trained in the skills required to mine and deliver this gold to your Town Hall for disbursement as you see fit.[1]

Orc description

Some rock faces hold deposits of gold. You will recognize them because Blackhand has sent searchers out, and any that were located will have an entry way clearly marked. Peons will mine these holes and deliver the gold to your Town Hall for disbursement as you see fit.[2]


Gold Mines are given a build cost of 100 lumber in the game files, but this is unused because they cannot be built. [3]
