The Mythril Mine is a short dungeon in Final Fantasy VII where townsfolk from Kalm used to work before the appearances of Midgar Zolom stopped the mining expeditions. Despite being called "Mythril" Mines, the mines are referred to as "coal mines" by a miner in the Kalm bar in the game's PlayStation translation, contrary to the original Japanese release which never stated this. In the PC version the word "coal" has been removed. The weapon shop of Kalm, where the miners reside, sell weapons made of mythril.
The party follows Sephiroth through the mines during their world-wide hunt for him. Outside, Sephiroth has killed a Midgar Zolom prior to the party's arrival, and left its corpse on a tree trunk as a warning.
Inside the mines, the party meets the Turks: Rude, Tseng, and the rookie Elena. The Turks do not attack, only give a warning that Reno will be back with a new weapon to fight them. Elena accidentally slips Sephiroth has been sighted heading towards Junon, and the two parties part ways.
The Mythril Mine is located to the South on Gaia's Eastern continent.

It resembles silver but is stronger than steel, and much lighter in weight than either. The author first wrote of it in The Lord of the Rings, and it is retrospectively mentioned in the third, revised edition of The Hobbit in 1966. In the first 1937 edition, the mail shirt given to Bilbo is described as being made of "silvered steel". The name mithril comes from two words in Sindarin—mith, meaning "grey" or "mist", and ril meaning "glitter".The word "mythril" or "
- If the player skipped Kalm, Cloud's party members stop him from going deeper into the mines, telling him to go back to Kalm. This can lead to a tricky situation as the player cannot use a chocobo to cross the marshes, although the Midgar Zolom can still be avoided by other means.
- If the player triggers the aforementioned scene and Aeris is in the party, she will use Tifa's dialogue because the developers accidentally assigned Aeris with the wrong text ID. The line Aeris is meant to say can never be seen in a normal play-through, although it still exists in the game's text files.
- The Mythril Mine is referenced in the Brain Blast quiz of Final Fantasy XIII-2. It is listed as an incorrect option for a question asking for the location of the Paddra Ruins.
