The Mining Potion is a buff potion which grants the Mining buff when consumed. The buff increases mining speed by 25%. This lasts for 10 / 8 / 5 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop versiontModLoader version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Console versionOld-gen console versionNintendo Switch), or by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version).

It has a small chance to appear as a bonus drop from Slimes.
