The Orc Mines is the ninth level (slot nine) of Catacomb Abyss (1992). It is set in a mine inhabited by Orcs, with numerous collapsed tunnels to blast through to get to the Gate of the Trolls. It features the Green Gem, the final gem in the set.


"This level features another new theme: Mine. There are a few skeletons around, but the main enemy is the new orc. There's also the last (green) gem hidden here."


This level was re-created as part of the Catacomb: ABYSS total conversion for the ZDoom engine.
