You will find Mole Miners in Fallout 76 in a handful of locations—17 to be precise—with most clans found in and around the Ash Heap and Savage Divide. Here are the key sites where you can discover Mole Miners in the game:

  • Blackwater Mine
  • Brim Quarry
  • Hornwright Industrial Headquarters
  • Hornwright Testing Site 2
  • Hornwright Testing Site 3
  • Hornwright Testing Site 4
  • Kerwood Mine
  • Monongah
  • Monongah Power Planet
  • Mount Blair
  • Mount Blair Trainyard
  • Pleasant Valley Ski Resort
  • South Cutthroat Camp
  • The Burning Mine
  • The Rusty Pick
  • Uncanny Caverns
  • Welch

When tackling the Mole Miners, remember that they often drop a Miner’s Key, which begins the repeatable miscellaneous quest “Lost and Found.”

Along with enemy Mole Miners, you can also discover Purveyor Murmrgh, the only known friendly Mole Miners in Fallout 76, and a competent merchant who sells legendary equipment. Here, at The Rusty Pick, you can purchase weapons and armor.

The Mole Miner in Fallout 76 is a sentient mole-like creature that has acquired the ability to work in packs, utilize weapons and equipment, and even speak occasionally. They’re most often found in industrial settings, where they typically live and work, and will also take on the role of treasure hunters throughout Appalachia.

Furthermore, you’ll note their odd demeanor and appearance. The Mole Miner often dons brown-drab clothing, like a large bedsheet draped over their bodies, and occasionally oversized backpacks and mining equipment, like masks and breathers.

If you’re delving into Fallout 76, chances are you want to know all about Minerva, including her schedule, location, and inventory!
