Ore Excavation Tours

There are several tours players can take which will allow them to collect medals. These medals can be exchanged for various island-exclusive items by talking to Granny. At first, players can only choose one-star challenges. Stars determine the difficulty of the challenge. Higher difficulty challenges are worth more medals. You can unlock higher difficulty challenges by completing the lower ones. After unlocking all challenges, Leilani will only offer 12 random challenges of varying difficulties that change every day. Each tour has a ranking system. If you exceed the minimum score required, you’ll be given more medals.

The objective of this tour is to find breakable rocks, shatter them with your shovel and collect the gemstones inside. Regular gemstones are worth 1 point while the announced ore is worth 3 points. In higher difficulties, a 10-point mystery gemstone will be added.
