Dinkum tends to embody the idea that looks can be deceiving – this title has a colossal depth that betrays the game’s first four hours. One aspect that goes a lot deeper than it seems is mining, and players will need to spend a few days in-game before it becomes obvious.
The Quarry is one of many unique buildings that can be placed in the village. Before getting there, players must complete daily objectives to earn certification points, which appear as blue money in-game.

The Quarry is an advanced building available once players sell data disks to Franklyn, which only appear available during mining with the Mine Pass. First and foremost, however, players must improve their mining certification with points: 3,500 points are required for deep mining to be unlocked.
Conquering Deep Mining gives players their primary way of mining Iron Ore until the Quarry is unlocked. While deep mining, players will come across several high value items, both fossils and gems, which will be sold to John. Place these items in the elevator as you find them: you cannot place them in your inventory for safekeeping.
Deep Mining will unlock another collectible: Data Floppy Disks. Selling these discs to Franklyn ultimately unlocks the Quarry, the endgame source of mining. It’s expensive, but unlocking the quarry leads to daily barrels of items along with ore deposits. Unlocking the Franklyn Quarry costs the following resources:
- 70,000 dinks
- 5 old gears
- 3 Ancient Sources
- 1 Old device
- 1 button placket
- 1 old toy
This results in passive income from mining materials, but it should be noted that it will not ultimately replace using deep mining, especially when grinding certain ores for advanced buildings. However, if you plan properly, this should severely limit the amount of time you spend pickaxe in hand.
