The Veridium Mine is an elven ruin in the Dales. It is unknown if the elves of old used it as a mine or for other purposes, but by 9:42 Dragon the ruin was used to mine veridium, and more recently as a military base.
At some point after the sister establishes the Veridium Mine as a base for Freemen, Gertrude, one of the refugees hiding out from the War of the Lions, sneaks into her camp in order to steal supplies for her people at Watcher's Reach. The Freemen decide to imprison her for her theft.
When the Inquisitor arrives at the scene, they are mistaken for a rescue party for Gertrude, and she attacks, dying as a result. The Inquisitor then rescues the prisoners.
