Blackwater Mine is a location in the Savage Divide region of Appalachia in 2102. It is a uranium mine that was used by the federal government before the Great War.

BackgroundEdit

Before the Great War, Foreman Mitchell Hibbs oversaw an increase in uranium yields at this federal uranium site, with Hibbs attributing the success to the addition of extractor machines. However, the efficiency of the automation caused many of the workers to slack off, resulting in orders to lay off 30 men. Eventually, Hibbs himself was replaced with the Blackwater auto-foreman, leaving an angry message on a terminal as a warning to any future human employees.[1]

Between 2077 and 2102, it served as the headquarters of the Blackwater Bandits and their leader Freddie Lang. Sometime before Reclamation Day, much of the gang had either been wiped out or turned into feral ghouls after a member accidentally set off a radiation leak while messing with one of the machines in a drunken state. Freddie was turned into a glowing one and the gang was never heard from again. Since then, the mine and its immediate surroundings have been heavily occupied by mole miners.

LayoutEdit

Blackwater Mine is to the east of the Whitespring Resort. There are several buildings in the northern part of the mine, and the mine itself is accessed through a large building to the south.
