You will face a couple of challenges and those could be that you might get hurt or get strained out because of all the hard labor. Also mines can collapse when you are inside so you could die. There are a lot of risks that you will take if you are a miner but if you are successful then the money could be really good for you and your family. Also another challenge is that people form together here and go find and punish wrongdoers and these people are called vigilante committees.


The positives are that the money could be really big like you could be making the best money as a miner if you are successful. It is a great adventure to be mining because it is a lot of excitement to find these materials and seeing what you found. If you do good enough then I will over you some benefits and pay for like food, housing costs. It will just depend how good you do and how much money you make me.
