    Mine Question

    When you are in the mine how can you tell the difference between silver and platinum lodes ? To me, they look alike. I dont mean the ingots.
    I need to get some platinum and have plenty of silver. Thanks beforehand !!

    I have trouble telling the ingots apart as well as the ores, unless they are side by side to compare.

    In the mine, the platinum looks almost white, much brighter than the silver ore. It's also much less common.

    Once we mine it, the platinum gets darker, closer to the silver color, but still lighter and without the hint of blue that the silver has.

    Maybe the surest solution is to learn their shapes.
