Table 6.1
Could you please explain how you arrived at the answer in your example (21 gp/week/miner)? I think that there is something about it that I am missing.

Hi Walter, thanks for bringing to my attention this detail.
It is not your fault but mine, actually an error I made when I changed the value on table 6.1
A copper mine with ore quality yields 35gp/week/miner.
Without smelting it yields 25% of 35gp, that is 8.75 gp (8gp, 7sp, 5cp).
I will make a correction of the text and you will receive notification of the update within Sunday.
Thanks again for telling me.

Thanks for getting back to me. I love your product.

Above, you stated, "A copper mine with ore quality yields 35gp/week/miner."

What is the ore quality?

"...with ore quality 6..." I forgot to specify the number.
The ore quality represents the purity of the ore, in the example above we are talking about copper.
Every metal is found in ore together with other elements. The higher the density of a specific metal in the ore, the higher the quality. Also, ore quality represents purity at molecular level. Modern techniques can purify the ore to a molecular level, ancient ones didn't even know this.
I will give an historical example. Go back in time during the British-French war under Napoleon.
Napoleon wanted to build cannons employing steel alloy so that his cannons could match the resistance and quality of british cannons. What usually happened was that when french cannons tried to mmatch british kinetic power they exploded!
Why that happened? They sent spies trying to steal any possible secret hidden in the fabrication process, but nothing worked.
Later, they discovered that British employed norvegian iron to produce...See more

Thanks for the information. Thanks for alerting me to the facts concerning Napoleon's problem. Some Dwarvin mines just have better iron-ore of a much purer quality. Surely the belligerent ruler(s) of ______ would not want to make war with them or cheat them to get it all.

No, they would not want.
Controlling a vaste iron deposit of high quality implies controlling the balance of a whole region.
Now, the Mining Guide doesn't cover the technical implications of employing high quality ore, things like bonus to attack and damage rolls of weapons made with pure metals, but it is something than can be included.
The next update will include the production of alloys, special alloys, exotic alloys and possible effects on equipment like weapons and armor.

Sadly the PDF does not come with the chapters pre-bookmarked in the PDF file. It's simple things like that that will make a product stand out from the crowd.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
