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!
