Build a Gold Mine and a Foundry

The Foundry is your main ore smelting point in the game. You can bring here iron and gold ore, and your workers will smelt them into iron and gold ingots respectively.

But first, you need to be able to mine the gold ore in the gold mine before you can smelt it into ingots. Here's what you need to to do to be able to build a gold mine:

  1. Set up a Town Center in your settlement.
  2. Upgrade it to Tier 3.
  3. Locate a source of gold ore on the map (indicated by the golden icon).
  4. Build the gold mine right above that spot.
  5. Build a Gold Mine Center nearby for storing the gold ore.

Once the gold ore starts coming into the mine center, you can transfer it to your Foundry in the town. Usually, one gold ore yields 20 gold ingots.

Tax Your Population

Although the largest chunk of all your gold income will be provided by the gold mines and foundries, you can also tax the businesses of your town's population. These include:

  • Homesteads.
  • Luxury.
  • Large Houses.
  • Pubs.
  • Markets.
  • Market Squares.

Markets can make you a lot of gold in tax returns. But in order for markets to work as intended you need to make sure that your population constantly manufactures goods for visitors, who will arrive at your town and buy goods from them.

Build a Trading Center

The last method is the hardest one, as it requires lots of provisions, but may yield a lot of gold in the process.

If you want to build a Trading Center in your town, do the following:

  1. Set up a Town Center in your settlement.
  2. Upgrade it to Tier 2.
  3. Build a Trading Center.
  4. Check it frequently until the trader shows up, willing to buy your goods.
  5. Transfer items from the Global Storage into the Trading Center.

The Global Storage contains all the manufactured goods that are being stored in your town. You can choose any quantity you wish and trade goods for gold.
