Mining has been implicated in the latest spate of volcanic eruptions in the Shna region, with Mount Fehashna erupting twice this year alone. Fortunately this is an area sparsely populated, but with the region’s only stand of ancient snow wood trees.
Mining activities are uncommon these days but still necessary when needed minerals are hard to synthesise in fusion workshops. The Shna area is rich in natural shuonite, which tends to form only alongside active magma flows.
Both Mount Fehashna and Mount Asenashna have erupted this week, threatening local forests, and contaminating nearby lakes.
