W7 claimed control over the mines after it reappeared in the region. The mines have been closed off ever since.
The Lizzium Mines were created one hundred years ago by a large W7 mining operation in hunt of Lizzium. Huge quantities of Lizzium were found within the mine. The mining operation ended two years later with the mines closed and abandoned.
W7 would appear almost a hundred years later and ask the current generation of Lizzium Village for permission to use the mines. The village agreed to this proposal, as long as W7 would protect them.
