    im out trying to dig up a shadow elm and im using a prospecter tool and gargoyal pick. found a regular ore spot and used the prospecter tool and it says dull copper can be mined there then i used my gargoyal pick and dig up only regular ore! i went and found another spot and used the prospecter again and said i can get dull copper there so i tried a regular pick an got only regular ore. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? Please help! [​IMG]

    May just be a bad roll on the ore you're digging up... it's registering correctly, but the "roll" for each dig is coming up Iron.

    Unless this remains a trend, I'd chalk it up to bad luck.

    On Lake Austin we're having some issues with them of a quite different nature - some places aren't becoming "unprospected", even days later....
     
  8. Must be a bad roll. Some sites are poor in color ore - I haven't had as bad a string of luck as you have tho. I dug up a shadow yesterday and one the day before. Does your miner have the skill to mine shadow ore?
