The Dwarfs' Mine is the workplace of the seven dwarfs in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Every morning, the dwarfs leave their cottage and march to the mine, where they dig for diamonds. The reason for this is never explained (this is made reference to in "Heigh-Ho", in which the dwarfs sing that they "don't know what we dig 'em for"). Each dwarf has a specific job: Grumpy, Happy, Bashful and Sneezy dig; Sleepy transports the diamonds to Doc, who determines which diamonds should be kept; rejected diamonds are swept up and thrown away by Dopey. The dwarfs return home late every evening. As they leave for, and return from, work, the dwarfs sing "Heigh-Ho".
Like all locations in the film, the mine was designed by Albert Hurter, with other artists contributing designs, as well as ideas for 'gags' for the dwarfs and mechanisms to help them in their work. The mine was realised as a three-dimensional location for the DVD's game 'Dopey's Wild Mine Ride', in which the player helps Dopey retrieve the other six dwarfs from within the mine in order for them to proceed to the cottage to save Snow White from the Witch, by solving various puzzles related to the film.
The Mine has been brought into three-dimensions in the Disney theme parks in Snow White's Scary Adventures. The original Disneyland version placed the mine as the opening of the attraction, while many other versions have utilized it as a lead-up to the climax.
