The Ant Mines is a network of tunnels connecting many areas of Bugaria. It is located under the Anthill Palace. Many Ancient Crystals are mined here for use in the Ant Kingdom.
At first the tunnels are locked, and the party must unlock the tunnels as they progress through the game to create shortcuts to multiple areas of the game.
The mines are accessible right after the team talks to Queen Elizant II, but it doesn't have any area passages until Chapter 2 is cleared.
