The mines of Belith are located in the Northern Belith Range in Galgari lands. They supply Northern Tarania with iron ore, copper and tin. The majority of miners are from the lower castes. Conditions in the mines are grim, with the constant threat of injury or death. After the caste uprising in 1185, Lord Zirani, now owning a large part of the mines, established a garrison of Grey Cloaks at the mines—an act, that although powerless to oppose, sickens Sorcha.
