I've been avoiding the mine and collecting tools for this event.
But, I have been buying clay from the dealer because it has been requested on my planes a couple of times lately. If there are no products I need to buy to fill orders, I have been buying clay, tools or ore. My ore is minimal so I am eagerly awaiting this event.
my goal in this event is to get as much ore as i can. if i place at the top it’s a bonus but it’s not a priority. i start the second day with ore galore and i use the see the light booster so i can collect as much as possible. i also use the booster for cutting the smelting time so i can upgrade my trains and factories quicker. i typically only go into the mine when the event starts and save tools between the time. i’ll use the dealer when i run out of tools and the event is still going.
I didn't even think of the boosters--will check to see if I have enough jewels to do that. And--here's a secret--I never built the third foundry 'cause I really couldn't even keep two busy all the time. I'll check into that again, see if I can move anything to fit the last one in there.
The third foundry is necessary in my opinion. There are times I do not have smelting going on (such as when I'm low on ore), but when I do, having the third foundry is essential. And, if I'm using a booster so many more ingots gets smelted with the third foundry.
As for this event, I also won't start until Day 2 and use the See The Light booster. As for the smelting, I will probably wait a couple of days until I have a good supply of ore and then use the booster. Hate to waste the booster is I'm low on ore which I am right now!
I'm still buying tools from the dealer to build up that stock in preparation.
I start evet just to be registered, but then I wait for double ore if there is any . I take booster for mine and work only as long as don`t get as much ore as I can. Before each event I collect tools and by them from Raja, I avoid doing mine for regatta to collect as many tools as I can. For the last two ore events it works fine. I collect enough ore to make ingots between events.
Looks like we're all on the same page with mining, I love it and hoard tools too! I have the most tools I've ever had, I have 2 boosters ready to go, and I know not to start until Ore Galore hits!
Here's a tip....I found out something in Family this week that I did not know...if something you have uncovered goes off the top of the screen, it is automatically collected for you! Not much gets by me but I like that I don't have to worry about gathering it all, that saves screen taps!

Just adding my two cents. I am NOT excited to see these mini events being extended longer and longer. I really liked when they were only 2-3 days long. Thank goodness I am through with the Mayor's Achievement. It is becoming harder and harder to complete now.
I have lots of tools saved. Not a hoarder exactly but I just do mining for the regatta tasks. Now I will be sure to only play the "mini" event during Ore Galore. Thanks so much for posting those dates! Love the heads up!
I can't really answer your question. But I will add below the post I took the info from on FB:
"Mine Time starts tomorrow and it will last 6 days! It is the first time ever that it will be that long. And that explains why we saw Ore Galore 2 times on the hidden calendar: Sept 3 and Sept 7! So here’s the schedule of events: Sept 2 - Mine Time (no double ores) Sept 3 to 4 - Ore Galore # 1 Sept 5 to 6 - Mine Time only (no double ores) Sept 7 to 8 - Ore Galore # 2 Sept 8 - Mine Time and Ore Galore ends together"
