In Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, you’ll need silver ore to create silver ingots, and you’ll need a lot of it to craft various items.

In this Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town guide, we’ll help you find silver ore and make it into silver ingots, which you’ll need to upgrade tools, build makers, and fix up other structures.

To get silver ore, you have to fix the bridge on your farmland. You’ll need 15 lumber to fix the bridge and access the second part of the farm where there’s a mine that has silver rocks with ore inside. The deeper you go, the more silver ore you find, but the second mine only has 30 floors.

You can also find patches on your farmland where the silver rocks will spawn, allowing you to farm some silver ore every couple of days without going into the mines.

Once you have silver ore, place it in an ingot maker to get a silver ingot. It takes four in-game hours to process five silver ore make one silver ingot.

For the best silver ore farming, you need access to the third part of the farm, which has yet another broken bridge in the back. To get to the third farm expansion, you’ll need 50 Solid lumber, 20 silver ingots, and 50 mortar. Repairing the second bridge uses 30 supple lumber and 10 silver ingots. After repairing the bridge, you’ll have access to a new mine that goes much deeper, allowing you to farm lots of silver ore easily.
