Miner Smurf


An other Smurf who is available for Coins is Miner Smurfs. Miner Smurfs Mine is available at level 12 for 1000 Coins and takes 24 hours to build as well. Miner is stationary and comes with his own mini-game.
Every twenty-four hours Miner gives 200 XP and 100 Coins and like Timber a sign above his mine shows when he is ready. Clicking on his mine also shows a countdown bar indicating how long it takes until he is ready again to give bonus XP and Coins.

Stones put near his mine increase the amount of XP given by miner, the bigger the stones, the more bonus XP they give. To see which stones are affected and within Miner’s range just tap on his mine, all stones that give the extra XP will turn green, just like the logs placed near Timber Smurf do. The Maximum XP you can get from the stones put next Miner’s mine  is about 1000XP.

Miner comes with a mining mini-game. There are four different mines to choose from, after that it is the goal to break open as many rocks in 60 seconds with an axe as possible. If a broken rock reveals silver, gold or a gem it can be traded for XPs (gems) and Coins (gold and silver). Cole can also be found under the rocks but if this happens it cannot be exchanged for something valuable.
To increase the speed with which the stones are broken by the axe, the use of the golden axe is required; it cuts the number of blows of the axe needed in half. The golden axe can be bought within the mining game for 20 Smurfberries.

Miner Smurfs’ Hut & Diamond Mine

The Miner Smurf Update (version 1.2.7 on iOS and 1.1.5a on Android) added a Mushroom House for Miner Smurf as well as a new mine for his game.
The Diamond Mine Is only available after Miner Smurf’s Hut has been build. The Diamond mine, unlike all of the other mines, does not have coal, meaning that the rewards in XP and Coins for playing this mine can be higher than with the other mines.
Miner Smurf’s Hut is available for Smurfberries. After it has been placed it will grant an additional 200 XP every time Miner Smurf’s Mini-Game has been played, that means it can give up to 200 XP every 6 hours.

Miner Smurf’s Mini-game Bugs

If you are android users and you have already updated Smurfs village App to the new Christmas / winter (2011) update for , you may encounter some problems with Miner Smurf mini-game. Mainly you may barely smash the rocks, or the game freezes and crushes.

This problem only occurs with some Android devices in particular Samsung Galaxy. According to Beeline, you can avoid crashes during miner mini-game by going into the Smurfs’ Village options and turning off the sound. This will allow you to play Miner Minigame smoothly with no problems.

    Hello!! I have 30 SB to spend and I'm debating on whether I should buy the mining cart mini-game on the mountain. Could someone describe the game? I really appreciate it!!!! :)

  2. ayne says:

    On my device, the bonus games, such as Marina’s, Naughty, papa smurf’s potion, miner, Lucky, and Greedy’s bakery’s clock wouldnt count down until i click on any of them to check how many time it left sometimes. Not always, but it happens quite often still. Did anyone have the same experience? thanks.

  3. Gwyn jones says:

    On iOS latest version of smurf village, the scavenger hunt wants 2 stone wall built, but does not recognize when these have been built. Has anyone else seen this problem.

  4. skicc says:

    Hi, please help me. I can't close the app, I have to tap "home" button to exit. Why? It is the newest, I upgrated now to version 1.4.9. android. Thanks

    • Stroumpfette says:

      Not sure. What happens when you try to exit? Is the screen locked, frozen, do you see the Blue menu before you leave?

      • skicc says:

        Thanks for the quick reply :) The screen is frozen, I see the village still and not the blue menu. The app do this for two weeks, I thought have to upgrade (I did it a day before yesterday), but despite it isn't work. After closing with the "home" button, the background of phone is empty (3-4 sec), it has time to loading. Over and above: 1. by task of smurf the screen doesn’t react (exit with home button); 2. while the ship travel the app is frozen and lock (exit with home button); 3. I don’t get advice, although it is set. 4. sometimes the smurfs run or the game is halting. This is my first smart-phone, I don't know what should I do and I don't want to lose the reached levels of SmurfsVillage :(

        • Stroumpfette says:

          Would you please share with us the Make and Model of your smartphone as well what Operating System (iOS or Android) it runs and the version of that OS. You can find that information in the details about your Device. I can try to help you locate it if you don't know where to look.

          • skicc says:

            Sure, thank you. Sony Xperia M, android 4.1.2; currently the free memory is circa 500 MB, I don't have SD card still.

          • Stroumpfette says:

            Hmm. Not sure if not having an SD card is the issue, but it shouldn't have anything to do with exiting the game. Have you opened a ticket with Beeline yet? It is possible that the game isn't fully compatible with the type of device you have. There have been issues with several different Android devices. Let us know what Beeline says. You can contact them via their support portal at

    • calmen says:

      HOW U PLAY THE GAME?????

      • Stroumpfette says:

        First, please don't write in all CAPS. It's equivalent to shouting.

        Second, which game? The entire Smurfs' Village or a particular Minigame? You can peruse the sidebars for the how-to guides.

  5. Vicky says:

    Which mine has the white crystals

  6. Crushed says:

    I used to get loads of XP and coins in miners game on the mainland after I bought the golden pick, but now I hardly get anything. This started recently – not sure if Beeline changed something in the last update (pirate smurf update) to try to get us to unlock the diamond mine, or do rewards suddenly drop after you reach a certain level if you don't have miners hut?
    Has anyone else experienced this recently? In my last game every rock I crushed for the first 35 seconds had nothing or coal. I eventually got 300 xp and a few coins.

    • Smurfette says:

      The rewards do not drop when you reach a new level. It might be a bug or Beeline changed it, we have no information regarding this, but they usually do not announce this kind of change

  7. Afiq Jumit says:

    Hi All..i bought rock crusher for 15SB and now i receive 9+9=18 stones everyday..i just wanna ask, if i bought another rock crusher for 15Sb and place it next to the miners mine, should i get 9+9+9=27 stones everyday? Thanks..

  8. Lee says:

    How do I get a smurfy rating on the miners game?

    • Smurfette says:

      When you break open the rocks, try to use the axe in the middle of three or four rocks, they should all break at the same time, that way with one go you can uncover up to four items under the rocks. I always get smurfy when doing this.

  9. Beau says:

    What Is better, the gold pick for 20sb or the miner hut for 25 sb? Which one improves the miner game more?

    • Poet says:

      The gold pick would be better as you get to unlock the cave that gives you the most rewards through the mini game. The hut merely awards you a small amount of xp each time you play the mini game.

  10. RICO SS says:

    What mine has blue crystals

  11. Lollapallooza says:

    Clown tasks have been asking to collect 3 coals but what is coal? Been digging but only been getting gems. Is coal the black stone that does not give any points? But even if I dig these, clown still ask me to collect 3 coals?

    • Smurfette says:

      Yes, coal is the black stone in the mining game. Does the task maybe say you have to get it from a specific mine?

      • Raq says:

        I've collected more than 5 coals which was what clown smurf requested but task is still not complete

        It does not state to collect from which mine

        • Stroumpfette says:

          We have opened a ticket but we haven't heard back yet. You may want to do the same at

  12. Rachel says:

    Is anyone else having a problem with Miner's game on the mountain? Miner doesn't jump high enough anymore to reach the diamonds and gold. He doesn't even jump high enough to jump over the rocks on the ground. It's been this way for the past couple updates. Is it just my game?

    • Stroumpfette says:

      Try holding the button down a bit longer. If you let up on it too quickly, he won't jump high enough.

      • rachel says:

        It doesn't matter how long I hold the button down, he barely jumps. sometimes he doesn't jump at all. I've already sent a message to beline but they never respond. I was just wondering if it was only my game that isn't working properly. Thanks for trying to help :)

  13. Vic says:

    If I buy the rock crusher will it double the max stone like the wood splinter does for timber which would show up as 9+9 stone?
    Thanks in advance

    • Poet says:

      Yes it will. Simply place it near Miner Smurf and make sure that when you tap on Miner Smurf, the rock crusher is highlighted.

    • erik says:

      Hi, I get 9 stones from miner. With the crusher near the mine I get 12 stones. The crusher is in de green circle from the mine. Question: do I have to place the crusher in the green circle from the mine? For the 12 stones the crusher was in the circle from the mine and didnot watch if it was highlighted

      • Stroumpfette says:

        I have my crusher right in front of the mine. I don't take any chances that it is going to work if I place it elsewhere. Your best bet is to place it as close to the mine as possible.

  14. Conan says:

    I bought both miner's hut and the golden axe.
    Although there are no coals in the diamond hut, but there are a lot of empty rocks. Its the same to dig an empty rock or the one containing coals!

  15. Smurf fan says:

    How do you find miner's mine on the build menu?

  16. ssss says:

    scavenger hunt asks me to place 3 rocks near Miner's mine…Which rock it means? Small big or medium?

  17. SmurfingItUp says:

    I just saw in the game I can purchase a rock crusher with sb that will double the stones from Miner in the village. Do I have to delete rocks to get it near, or can it be outside of the range to get the bonus. I don't want to waste my sb. Thx

    • Stroumpfette says:

      It needs to be placed near the mine. I have mine directly in front of the mine and had to remove a large mossy stone to place it there.

  18. justAniGame says:

    How to maximize XP from stones placed around, as different type of stones give different XP, please guide the best way out.

  19. Daicha Birrueta says:

    I am having a lot of trouble mith miner smurf on the mountain . Every time I play the game, use smurfberries, and get a poor score, it takes my smurfberries but doesn't give me my Xperia or coins!! Why?

  20. Selena says:

    Im in level 31. I don't get it should i play timber smurf's mini game 12 times to get all the wood papa smurf asked for?? And is it the same for miner smurf? I don't get it… How do I get the 9 stones and 12 wood??

    • Smurfette says:

      Timber Smurf does not have a mini game. They give you once (Miner Smurf) and twice (Timber) per day bonus XP. When you collect that you get also wood (timber) and stone (miner).

  21. Sim says:

    Miners game has become pointless to play like many others.. Spent smurfberies to get daimondmine and now getting 200 average exps and coins where as before update was getting av of 2000.

    Bee line please put bk to normal as no one will play miner smurfs game if it is that low in points.

    • Smurfette says:

      I still get the usual XP (between 1000 and 3000 depending on how well I do). If it does not work better you can contact Beeline about it via their contact form here:

  22. Lili says:

    Is 9 stones/day the maximum or I can have more stones from the mine somehow? I need lots of stones.

    • Stroumpfette says:

      Nine stones per day appears to be the max. You can dig for stone on the mountain, or spin Lucky's wheel on the island and try to win stone, or play Lucky's game on the mainland, send out a raft on a stone voyage on the island, and of course you can also trade stones via your friends and neighbors gift network. The other alternative is to buy stones with SB in the Resources tab.

  23. bea says:

    if you buy the golden ax, is it only for a time period or is it mine "forever"?

    • Stroumpfette says:

      You only need to purchase it once. It lasts forever.

    • Alchemist_Smurf says:

      No, it lasts forever (unless you Recover your village). For only 20 Smurfberries, enjoy the ability of doubling your mining power to boost your maximum XP when you play Miner's Mine!

  24. patrick says:

    how do you find more gems&trasures in miner smurf cuz he keeps giving the cheap one( red gems orange gems etc)

    • Alchemist_Smurf says:

      The better the mine you play in, the better the minerals you find.
      P.S.:You unlock better mines as you enhance your level.
      P.P.S.: Those are not orange gems you are talking about-they are gold nuggets.

  25. TL smurf says:

    How do I get as many stone resources as possible from minor smurf?

    • Sassete says:

      The max limit of stones you get from him is 9 every 24 h and that number is not possible to increase

    • Stoner Smurf says:

      I upgraded the Raft Hut on the island to include three rafts, and I keep them on Stone Voyage missions at all times (unless I have to send out a different raft to accomplish a quest). This gives 2 stones per voyage, for a total of 6 per day from the island. With the 9 stones from the village mine, the daily total is 15. Constant digging on the mountain provides 1 or 10 stones on occasion. Best plan: keep rafting and keep digging! Stones are *always* my limiting resource for building things.

      • george says:

        You can send more rafts and collect 8 stones as i am doing now u just need to upgrade ure rafts and spend 4 berries .. u can do even more than that u need berries my friend

  26. TimberSmurf says:

    Green gems, Purple, Gems, Do they exist? Or is beeline talking tricks?

  27. Dee says:

    How do you collect more stone without buying it?

  28. Sai Jai says:

    Do any other players feel it is pointless to play Miner Smurf’s mini game?

    At times, the pick ax freezes and the timer continues to count down.

    The rewards are smaller and smaller each time I play that I feel it has become a worthless game.

    Remember when beeline advertised the diamond mine as a mine full of treasure; where every rock had a gem?

    Recently I won 10 gold coins and 10xp in the diamond mine! What a huge let down!

    • Stroumpfette says:

      Beeline is aware of this issue but hasn't given a timeframe for a fix. Many players have noticed if they reboot their device before playing miner's game, the rewards tend to be better. the longer one goes between reboots, the worse Miner's rewards become.

  29. Sai Jai says:

    Correction: “the diamond mine is only available when Miner’s hut has been built.”

    There may not be coal in the diamond mine, but now there are plenty of empty stones. When the diamond mine first came out, it was advertised as the best mine because every rock broken would reveal treasure…not so much these days.

    • Alchemist_Smurf says:

      True, but what you should know is that the Diamond /mine has the highest chance of getting very rare gems and jewelery whenever you DO get a rock with something in it. This can really help you level up or save up high amounts of money, so these are reasons why Miner Smurf's hut is worth the price.

  30. Sai Jai says:

    Instead of “Cole”, the author of this article meant “coal.”

  31. Char'nJames says:

    Cannot find the golden axe in any of the menus for purchase??? Not sure why. Can anyone help?

  32. Emily says:

    I bought Miner Smurf's hut as soon as it came out and just today it has disappeared! I am not happy and don't want to spend more smurfberries to buy it again. Has this happened to anyone else?

    • NimaSheibani says:

      Do you have Sweepy Smurf? the reason could be that, try to recover your village to the last successful update

      • Emily says:

        Yes. I have all of the specialty smurfs but miner hut is the only problem :(. I tried that and it didn't work. Thanks for the idea!

    • Poet says:

      Do you happen to have Sweepy Smurf in your village? If you had accidentally tapped on his dirt piles, he could have 'swept' away your Miner Smurf's hut if it was near the dirt piles. This is a bug that will be fixed in the coming update. For now, you might want to consider restoring your game to the point before you got Miner Smurf's hut. To do so, you can either go to the game menu, tap options, then tap on Papa Smurf's head 16 times. A 'Recover Village' button should appear on the right hand corner. Tap on it and a list of saved games will appear in the next screen. From there, select your desired saved game, preview it and tap yes to confirm. Alternatively, you may try contacting Beeline support for assistance at
