The Mine was an underground chamber in Club Penguin. Mine tracks led into deeper and dangerous caverns, where Cart Surfer could be played. After puffles started getting lost here, Puffle Rescue could be played to save them.
The Mine was first opened to players in May 2006 during the Underground Opening Party, although at that time, it was completely empty. A week after the party ended, Cart Surfer first became playable. In January 2010, a landslide occurred. Penguins then starting drilling to see the cause, and the Cave Expedition began, where new tunnels were discovered. After the expedition ended, the caves were deemed unsafe, and were blocked off. However, a few months later, puffles began wandering in the closed off caves. Rescue teams were formed to save them, and Puffle Rescue came to be. After the rescuing began, the caves reopened.
However, the history of the Mine may date back to even before Club Penguin ended beta testing. According to issue 130 of the Club Penguin Times, after it was first discovered by the public, miners found small traces of gold ore. It was then hypothesized that someone already mined all the ore long ago, and left no gold remaining before abandoning the Mine. Aunt Arctic also mentioned that the gold that was mined here is what has made Club Penguin's currency, coins.
After renovation, various things were added to the Mine. There was a staircase leading up to the Mine Shack, where the entrance to the Cave Mine used to be. The entrance to Cart Surfer was also redesigned. Various mining equipment could be found across the room, along with piles of rock along the west wall. An entrance to the Gold Mine was added to the southeast corner, with a wooden walkway leading to it.
