The Oreburgh Mine was first mentioned in the anime in ''[[DP015|Shapes of Things to Come!]]'' by {{si|Ian}} who informs {{Ash}} and {{Ashfr}} that [[Roark]] is coal mining and exploring for hidden treasures. According to {{an|Brock}}, the coals in Oreburgh City are one of the richest in the world. Later, Ash and his friends arrive at the mine looking for Roark. At the mine, there are several large machinery and strong Pokémon carrying materials and equipment through the mine and throughout the outside area. There is a train track that leads to an opening of a mine, allowing mine carts to transport goods to and from the mine. Also at the mine is {{TRT}} in disguise, who recite their motto while pretending to dig for coal. When the company meet Roark, it is revealed that he is the foreman of the miners.
Oreburgh Mine also appeared in ''[[DP017|Wild in the Streets!]]'' where Ash is training his Pokémon against coal ore pillars after his loss to Roark the day before. At the same time, Team Rocket revives {{p|Armaldo}}, {{p|Kabutops}} and {{p|Aerodactyl}} from the revival machines they had stolen. Eventually, [[Officer Jenny]] and the scientists corner {{p|Armaldo}} and {{p|Kabutops}} at the Oreburgh Mine. Team Rocket and Aerodactyl also show up at the mine. Ultimately, Team Rocket is defeated and the Pokémon are caught.
The Mines appeared again in ''[[DP107|Ancient Family Matters!]]'' in two flashbacks. In the first flashback, it is revealed that Roark's dad, [[Byron]], had left him as the Oreburgh Gym leader just as Roark was being assigned to lead the Ancient Pokémon Excavation Operations at the Oreburgh Mine. The second flashback showed Roark as a kid showing his dad a [[Fossil]] of a {{p|Sunkern}} leaf at the Oreburgh Mine.
