Open the Secondary Silver Mine 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]

Quick walkthroughEdit

With some well-placed explosives, you can open up a section in the back of the Storage Cave, revealing another cave with some silver. Then you can mine it with the mining quests.

  2. DiploBoy - Can talk people into helping him or doing it for him.
  3. Stealth Boy - Has the best chance of setting the explosives in the right places, opening up the greatest amount of the cave.
