"A report, Master [Link]. We have arrived at Lanayru Mine.This arid region was transformed into a desert over the course of several hundred years."

The Lanayru Mine is a notable mine where the Ancient Robots would collect their main power source, Timeshift Stones, and then transport them to the Lanayru Mining Facility.[2][3] It is the first area that Link visits while traversing through the Lanayru Desert region. The mine used to be a lush green area, processing a large amount of high quality soil and Timeshift Stones. However, due to the actions of the inhabitants of the region, it slowly began to turn into a desert over the course of hundreds of years. The Lanayru Mine is where Link first activates a Timeshift Crystal, which, upon activation, turns the surrounding area into a past state, replenishing the citizens, objects, and landscape of the affected area. Using the powers of the newly discovered object and the various mine carts scattered around the mine, Link ventures through the mine and reaches the adjacent Lanayru Desert.[4]
