Many players enjoy the free game Idle Mining Empire, which simulates the extraction of several types of natural resources.
The goal of the game is to collect as much ore as possible. To have the elevator take the ore from the mine to the storage area, click on the miners to have them begin digging. You'll be in command of a mining firm where each employee has their own special task to do. Three different people are needed to complete the mineral extraction process: one to dig the shaft, one to remove the minerals, and one to carry the minerals to the market. However, these people will be sluggish at first and will require prompting from you. Put the money you've made into employing supervisors who can automate the labor process and more people to handle the increased workload.
