We are in the process of transferring the hosting and maintenance responsibilities of the wiki from Chucklefish to ConcernedApe, which is why the wiki will temporarily be hosted at stardewcommunitywiki.com. Soon the official wiki will resume at stardewvalleywiki.com and will be hosted going forward by ConcernedApe. Prior to the transfer to ConcernedApe we will update this site with the date on which the transfer will occur.
The Quarry consists of a large area with a wide selection of rocks and mining nodes that are randomly generated. Each day there is a chance that new rocks and nodes as well as oak and maple tree seeds will be generated. It is part of the same map as the Mountain, therefore it has the same forageable items and Artifact Spot contents as the Mountain.
You will gain access to the Quarry upon completion of the Crafts Room in the Community Center which rewards you with the Bridge Repair. The bridge is located east of The Mines and the Adventurer's Guild. If the Community Center was sold to the Joja Corporation and turned into the Joja Warehouse, you will instead acquire the Bridge Repair and subsequent access to the Quarry once the "Bridge" has been purchased from the Joja Community Development Form for 25,000g.
The Quarry itself can be home to every ore and gem in the game. However, stones containing valuable items like Iridium Ore or Prismatic Shards are much rarer and you may have to wait several seasons for new ones to spawn.
The Entrance to the Quarry Mine is on the western side of the quarry, above the bridge. The minecart unlocked by completing the Boiler Room Bundles will also take you to the Quarry, once the bridge is repaired.
Each day new rocks, nodes, oak and maple seeds will spawn, so to prevent valuable spawns from being blocked by existing rocks, it is wise to keep the quarry entirely cleared.
Using bombs in the quarry destroys rocks, ore nodes, and gem nodes (including the Gem Node and Mystic Stone), leaving stones, ore, and gems to collect. Bombs also destroy trees, leaving wood, sap, and possibly tree seeds.
This image shows the usable space in the Quarry. Colored tiles (chartreuse or turquoise) can be used to place paths, artisan equipment and refining equipment. Chartreuse tiles (tillables) may also be used to plant common trees.
- 1.4: Bombs no longer cause ore nodes to drop stone. Bombs now destroy gem nodes. The Quarry now spawns oak and maple trees.
