Mineralogy Institute Initial

The Mineralogy Institute is an infrastructure structure located on the desert, east of Gold Mine. It was originally introduced on July 10, 2015 as part of the timed quest called Grand Canyon.[1] The construction of this building provides 19px-CapitalPoints.png for 19px-CapitalPoints.png World Architecture: Australia.

A total of 70 assets are needed to complete construction of the Mineralogy Institute. This is equivalent to 70 Megabucks sm if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.
