The Quarry is a mining game developed by Dummiez. It was first being developed on November 14th, 2013 and was released in beta on April 4th, 2014. It has more than 5 million visits while being favorited by over 80,000 users. It was created as a "tribute" to PieDude777's "Epic Mining 2" after it was originally broken by later updates made by ROBLOX.

After the Jurassic World (2015) event ended, the game began gradually declining in popularity, possibly due to player link|PieDude777}}'s game being fixed and becoming re-available again to play. Soon after, the game was pulled off the front page. The interest rate beyond this point typically ranges from around 30 to 50 players.


You start on surface with pickaxe. Your mission is to dig, sell and upgrade to mine further and faster. Mine into dirt layer to get basic ores, then into stone layer to get advanced and basic ores, then into granite layer for advanced and rare ores and last obsidian layer for rare and special ores. Upgrade your pickaxe in shop and also buy other things such like faster teleport to surface time, teleport pad, visibility/light distance, dynamite and much more.

Group Ranks

Group Ranks are an optional part of The Quarry gameplay. To participate in this Ranking system, one must join the official fan club (The Quarry Fan Club), meet the criteria of a Rank, ensure they possess one of the mined total badges that proves they are qualified for a Rank, and then post on the group wall for the Rank they qualify for (Note: Your mined total on Dev Quarry doesn't count towards ranks as Dev Quarry doesn't provide badges)

Walking in a winter wonderland~

Like with the other featured games, players had the opportunity to obtain two game exclusive hats. The first hat "Snowman's Head" was obtained by touching the snowman head that perodically spawned and depsawned in various places on the map. The second hat was the "Festive Pickaxe Pack" that was obtained by finding and mining the turquoise ore while digging in the quarry.

Jurassic World Event 2015

On June 1st, 2015, The Quarry participated in the Jurassic World event. The map received a total makeover and made use of Smooth Terrain.


This section is a trivia section. Please relocate any relevant information into other sections of the article.

  • Players new to the game are often seen going into other people's holes and stopping when they see a rare ore. This can be frustrating to players because it either makes it harder for them to find rare ores or they want it really bad. Because of this, some players with the "Ore Claim" gamepass tend to hide their holes by placing blocks around them so others wouldn't be able to go in them. Some couldn't even mine ores given to them because some players have the ability to claim ores they have mined.
  • Adurites, fire crystals, and unobtainiums are some of the most wanted ores by players, since they are the most valuable.
  • Tektite can be easily confused as obsidian, and ruby can be confused as adurite, as they have the same colors.
  • The Viridian ore is not featured in the Dev version of this game.
  • Around early July 2016, The creator's account was compromised, resulting in dozens of malicious players stealing copies of the game and many players being given moderation tools resulting cheating, stat resets, and glitches caused by misuse of moderation tools.
