There is a very rare chance to proc 1-2 Buried Trace in your loot table when Lumbering, Tanning, Extracting, Hoeing, Mining or Butchering.

An announcement will appear alerting you to a buried trace after you’ve gathered from a node. Use 1 energy to interact with the buried trace (dirt cloud) to spawn a mystery chest.

* Use a Gold Key to open chests!

Buried Trace and Mystery Chest will disappear if not interacted with!
