'I'm Regin, in charge of smelting here at Othrikar. The yields are down again -- we're running out of silver in this mine -- but I've heard that somewhere in these hills there is a "father lode" with veins rich with gold, and maybe even mithril -- though I find it unlikely, as Moria-silver's not been found anywhere but Khazad-dûm.
'The Dourhands ruined the old prospecting records when they left, though. We need to find the proper records to find the father-lode. I suspect these records are still around Othrikar someplace, perhaps in a chest or locker.
'If you can discover them, you'll be doing us Longbeards a real service!'
The dwarf-mine at Othrikar is almost played out. Regin has heard of a rich "father-lode" somewhere in Nan Amlug, and he hopes to determine the location of this lode.
The lost mining records are somewhere around Othrikar probably in a chest or locker.
Regin has asked you to recover old mining records that may give a clue to the location of the legendary "father lode".
