Mount Casken Silver Mine
This page describes the Mount Casken Silver Mine, located in the Barony of Ostrund.
The Mount Casken Silver Mine is located within Mount Casken, within the Batlean Mountains of the Barony of Ostrund. Until recently, Mount Casken was not believed to possess valuable mineral veins. Five years ago, dwarven prospectors of the Clan Verard discovered potential for a rich silver vein within the mountain. With the Baron’s permission, the dwarves began digging a mine at the site. Within the past year, the dwarves announced the discovery of silver within Mount Casken and the mine was born.
Establishing the silver mine at Mount Casken has not been without controversy. Historically, the Outer Baronies, of which Ostrund is a member, have struggled economically. With the potential riches that might come from Mount Casken, the Barony of Ostrund has become something of a target for its jealous neighbors. Some have even suggested that the incident at House Houthar may be linked to predatory designs on Ostrund’s mine.
