The Phandalin Miner's Exchange was a trading post in Phandalin that purchased materials from local miners.[1]


The exchange was located to the southwest of Phandalin, and directly east of a trail used by the local miners.[1]


A lot of the villagers spent their time here, particularly those that had spent most of the working day around the countryside.[1]


The company would purchase quantities of ore and gems from the miners of Phandalin. Each piece was carefully measured and weighed, and then its price was determined.[1]

It also functioned as a records office, which registered claims to specific parts of the land, such as valleys and streams.[1]


In 1491 DR, the business was headed by Halia Thornton, a Zhentarim agent. Although the local brigands, known as the Redbrands, hassled almost all the businesses in Phandalin, they did not even attempt to ruin trade for the Phandalin Miner's Exchange.[1]
