The mine is the fourth item you can purchase. It will give you 50 cookies every 5 seconds.

It costs 2,000 cookies to start, and will increase 15% with each consecutive purchase.

Buying your first mine will increase Grandma output by +2 cookies per 5 seconds. It will also cause some grandmas to don brown miner uniforms.

TriviaEdit

  • You need at least 15 mines to purchase the "Miner Grandmas" upgrade.
  • The ultimadrill upgrade's flavour text, "Pierce the heavens, etc." is reference to the anime Gurren Lagann , where lines such as "Your drill is the drill that will pierce the heavens!" are said several times.
  • It would cost a total 91.93 quadrillion cookies to get the 200 mines necessary for the "Coreforge" upgrade, the last 20 mines representing 94% of that total cost.
  • Never Dig Down is a reference to Minecraft, where digging straight down can lead to death by lava.
  • Can You Dig It is a quote from the 1979 movie The Warriors, here is a link to a clip of the infamous phrase: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-OYKd8SVrI
  • The upgrade "H-Bomb Mining" is a reference to "Operation Plowshare" - A series of experiments by the US military to find non-combative uses for nuclear weapons. Unsurprisingly, testing proved that nukes were good for many things, mining however not being one of them.
