The Deep Elem Mine[56, 46] was once a bountiful source of silver ore, worked by Silverpine's most hardy young men to provide Gilneas, Dalaran, and Lordaeron with the materials needed to make money and jewelry. The farmers saw their share of the income, and the mine would probably have grown even deeper if the worgen had not arrived.
The wolfmen who now permeate most of the dreadful woods tore through the working men and supervisors with impunity, and feasted on their flesh afterwards. Led by the cunning Grimson the Pale, the worgen have made the mine their home, and ferociously attack anyone who wanders too close.
The mine's name was likely inspired by the Grateful Dead song "Deep Elem Blues."
