Find the Missing Miners
Talk to Korvend who will point you to the mine to rescue 2 other workers, directly ahead of him.
Navigate the linear path through the start of the mine, you will submerge in to some water, after you emerge in to a room with 3 barrels in the water, go directly ahead and submerge again, swimming through the small tunnel and surfacing at the other side in to a new room.
In here you will see the 2 miners in plain sight, talk to them, they will tell you that the tunnel is blocked and that it needs unblocking to drain the mine.
Drain the Mine
Now you have to remove the blockage on the drainage shaft, go in the water to the left of the miners and dive under. There is a strong current coming at you, which slows down your swimming speed. You must press to speed up and get to the yellow handle bar underwater, in the flooded tunnel, then press to boost yourself off the handle bar (makes you swim faster to get through the strong current). Emerge on the other side and climb the yellow ladder.
You need to reach the minecart in here at the top of the scaffolding on the other side of the room, jump in the water and make your way to the platform directly under the minecart, jump to the ladder here to climb up (can scan for it with to see yellow climbing markers).
Follow the linear path across the wooden beams to a new room. In here you can swim underwater to avoid the machines, or progress on the surface to the other side (up to you). Then follow the rail tracks out of the room.
Continue following the linear path through the crawl space ahead, it leads back into the room with the minecart. Drop down the ladder, in case you fall you can climb back up. Use your pullcaster ( + > hold ) on the wooden crane ahead to swing it close to you, then jump on it to reach the scaffolding on the other side. Then simply walk up to the minecart and press to detonate the explosives.
Return to the Miners
After detonating the explosives you will be attacked by a few machines, Burrowers and Scroungers, take care of them and then pull one of the crates out slightly that are located just near the ladder and leave the room through here back to where the miners are and talk to them again.
Return to Korvend
Now leave the mine the same way you came in and talk to Korvend to finish the quest.
