Shovelstrike Quarry Icon.png

The quarry is a location run by Lloid Icon.png Lloid where a player can break rocks to find rare minerals and gems. These are then converted into bells and/or materials depending on the featured reward (which ranges from Essences to Craft Materials to only Bells). The featured reward is displayed over the quarry on the map and changes every 12 hours.

Accessing the Quarry

There are two methods to access the quarry:

  • Requesting and receiving help from at least 5 friends (Available once daily)
  • Spending 20 Leaf Tickets (Available three times daily)

Lending a Hand

When a friend requests help from you to access the quarry, a shovel icon will appear on your social tab, and "Mind helping me out?" will appear above them on your friends list. Pressing the shovel button will contribute to their quarry entry, and after a friend has entered the quarry, all friends who have lent a hand will receive 1 Friend Powder.

Inside the Quarry

Inside the quarry, a player is put into a field of several rocks. A player is given a chance to break rocks which will then reveal a mineral. After five rocks, all the minerals will be totaled and Lloid Icon.png Lloid will give the player their reward.

Possible Minerals

These are the following minerals that can show up in the Quarry:

  • Gold Nugget.png Gold Nugget
  • Silver Nugget.png Silver Nugget
  • Sapphire.png Sapphire
  • Ruby.png Ruby

Reward Calculations

The following table shows the reward each mineral gives for each featured reward. 'Special Appearance' rewards only appear during special events.

Note: The game determines the minerals given before the player enters, so they will receive the same reward no matter which rocks are broken.
