Miners are responsible for the excavation and handling of Eorzea's mineral wealth, be it ores, fossils, precious stones, or otherwise. To fully master the advanced techniques developed by the great mining nation of Ul'dah, they undertake a wide range of tasks, from the meticulous prospecting of the most minute deposits to large-scale civil engineering. Many miners subscribe to the theory of continental drift, and take for their patron deity Oschon the Wanderer.
The most prominent Miner's guild in Ul'dah, is known by the name "Amajina and Sons Mineral Concern," and are the owners of many of the more prosperous mines outside of Ul'dah.
Their miners value physical strength, endurance, and even visible muscle-mass, which they used as a method to judge the Abilities of one another. Although this is secondary to the prospecting Abilities of the miner, many a pair was made up of a skilled prospector, and a strong miner.
The Amajina family lets the leadership of the concern go from father to son, and has been doing so since the founding of Ul'dah. However, the sons are only thought worthy, once they've worked in the mines themselves, so that they might know of the hardships that their employed miners can face. Along with this, the Amajina family, is among the wealthiest of merchant families in Ul'dah, and one of the few Ul'dahnian merchant families to have a standing supply contract with Limsa Lominsa, namely Naldiq and Vymelli's smithing guild.
