All around the map you will find glowing/ sparkling rocks with gems/ ores of different colors in them. You need to have a character with a pick axe in order to complete this achievement. Their character description will say that they are able to "mine Lego loot".

Find one of these rock piles, and wait for a shining glow to sweep across it. Press "X" at the same time this occurs, in order to have a better chance at perfect mines. After you press "X", a meter with an arrow will appear, with a small section in the center of the meter which will be the color of whatever ore you are mining. In order to earn a "perfect mine", you need to tap "X" again while the arrow is aimed in that section. You can only do this *once* per ore, just keep that in mind.

The best advice I can offer is to press "X" just before the arrow enters the center area. This will almost always cause it to stop perfectly in the correct area. I found that if you wait to click until the arrow is in the center, that it will usually overshoot the bullseye and you will miss out on it being perfect.

Just do this 50 times over the course of your play, (it only took me between 2-3 hours playing normally) and you'll have it! Best of luck. Let me know if there is anything else I can answer for you.

Happy Hunting!

There's a great way to both get this achievement and rack up critical loot very quickly.

Go to Bree. Outside the walls of Bree on the North West side (top left) of Bree is a thin path that loops, with a door at the top of the loop. Within here there is several rocks to mine.

Then walk back out and walk past Bree, in a straight line. Within about 20-30 seconds you'll come across a door called "Barrow-downs" (it's near a tall lego cliff face). Within here there's also a ton of rocks to mine.

You can walk back and forth between these two as much as you want, as they refresh each time you go back in (as long as you walk a reasonable distance away from each door; the distance between these two places is enough). Not only can you perfect your mining skills here but amass loot, such as the hard to find diamonds. Obtain the Double Loot and Attract Loot Red Bricks and you'll never be without ever again!
