Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Mine For Silver was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It was to be located in Blackfoot Village.[1]


If you're desperate, you can waste a lot of time mining and get a little bit of silver. Handy for the guy who feels like he has time to kill but no cash.

Character type completion breakdownEdit

  1. ScienceBoy - Can work more efficiently (higher Outdoorsman==faster), getting finished slightly faster. Having better tools makes you faster at working, too.
  2. DiploBoy - Can talk people into helping him or doing it for him.
  3. Stealth Boy - Can get more in the same amount of time because Steal and Lockpick mean he knows how to get little slivers of silver out of tight places.
