Escort the Frightened Miner through the Kaja'mite Cavern.
- Kaja'mite Ore mining a success!
They're all over the inside of the cavern, mining... with picks! It's just not natural and I'm sure it's because of the kaja'mite!
None of my miners have come back out. I don't have many left! You can see my predicament, <name>.
<The foreman lowers his voice.>
These guys are nowhere near as good as my old group of jungle trolls. Ah, those were the days.
Maybe you can escort my last miner here through the cavern and keep those monkeys off of him? We need that kaja'mite!
How did it go? How much Kaja'mite were you able to get?
We've hit the mother lode!!!
Now, what's all this about a in charge of the monkeys? Is he dead? Because if he's dead, then legally I can stake my claim... not that I wasn't going to do that anyway. By goblin law, all Kaja'mite belongs to us!

Reaching the first cave painting:
- Frightened Miner says: Whoa! What's with all of the cave paintings? Ack, do I hear monkeys?!
For the first three ore deposits, he can say one of the following:
- Frightened Miner says: I can't get anything else out of this one.
- Frightened Miner says: Did I ever tell you that I was a mid-level accountant with the company back on Kezan? I worked for you for years. Do you even know my name?
- Frightened Miner says: The monkeys already extracted most of the Kaja'mite out of this deposit.
- Frightened Miner says: What I wouldn't give for some explosives right about now.
Final ore deposit and pygmy altar:
- Frightened Miner says: That's good enough for now. I'll make my way out on my own. Thanks for the escort, <name>!
On turn in, Dampwick claims the mine!
- Foreman Dampwick says: On behalf of the Bilgewater Cratel, I lay claim to this mine!
