Documents - Journal 2

The Red Mine refer to special collectible Documents found in Rise of the Tomb Raider.

There are two total The Red Mine documents in the game.


We can no longer wait for our brothers outside the mines to begin their resistance.

The Soviets have found something they desire more than the poison ore, they found our forefathers history, have desecrated their tombs. This is the last injustice. We thought at first the old guardians would emerge, and punish our tormentors, but now I see we will have to be the instrument of God's retribution.

We gather our strength, store picks and axes in secret places... Very soon those of us that are still well enough will rise up, and bury our oppressors here, before they erase our past along with our present.

The journal of a Remnant worker, imprisoned in the Soviet mines...


When the uranium ore was nearly gone, I feared our operation was at an end. But even as we moved to close the shaft, fate intervened.

We found a chamber, half destroyed by a cave in, but clearly made by the hands of man. The artifacts inside are ancient, nearly a thousand years old, untouched since the tomb was sealed. We redouble our efforts, instead of mining, the workers now search and retrieve the artifacts inside.

The natives of the valley, their resistance once broken, now bristle at this new assignment, as if they do not wish the relics to be seen. We will need to make an example of a few young men, before their dark looks lead to something more.
