    This is done in Fossil Roo, in the second area, (Just right of the Fossil Roo/Cavern. Your menu will call this Fossil Roo/Mining site) there is a miner that will let you mine if you trade him a potion. Up in the top right hand corner of the map, is where you dig out Kuppo for another achievement. You can buy potions from Kuppo if you've ran out.

    The ring isn't in an exact specific location due to the fact that this mini game is based on a random number generator. I found the best method was to pause, and press RB to turn on High Speed Mode. While this mode is on, move to either the upper floor, or bottom and mash A or X when the exclamation point shows. Hit it about 5-10 times, and if you don't find anything, move to another location and repeat. You will either find, ore, hi-potions, or Madian's Ring (which is rare).

    On average, you will find about 4 to 5 items before items basically stop spawning. If none of them are Madian's Ring, walk to the edge of the map, and tell the miner you are done mining. Walk through to another room, and phase back to Fossil Roo/Mining site, trade another potion and go back at it. The key is to change the map, because this resets the treasures.

    I put on youtube videos and went to town, moving every-time I heard the item collection ding. Eventually getting it. Mind you, because it is random, this could take quite a few tries. But with super speed on, it'll make the search bearable.

    Missable achievement!

    When you progress normally in the game until you reach Fossil Roo, there will be a miner picking the rocks. He will ask you if you want to have a go at it as well after trading him.
    This is the same part where you can free the moogle out of the rocks for

    This is your only shot at getting it, so it would be wise to have a second save, if you'd like to continue and do this later, as it turns out this is RNG. Because of that, I already have to start a second playthrough, since you cannot enter anymore (you can try, I did to find out the hard way) as the staircases leading down to Fossil Roo is being blocked.
