Gentle Tiger has been tirelessly watching the entrance to the Metalworks. How did Pagdako manage to sneak past him...?
If by chance you had done the quest Fires of Discontent recently, you must wait a game day before being able to start this quest. Head over to Bastok Markets in the past and talk to Gentle Tiger who should be at H-6.
After talking to him, talk to Pagdako at H-9. Finally, talk to Blatherix at F-8. He will ask you to either bring him 30 chunks of Goblin Chocolate or just 5k gil. Granted, you'll probably just hand over the 5k if you are as lazy as I am or it would be that much more expensive to give him the chocolate he wants. He will give you the key item: Mine Shaft Key.
Next head to Grauberg in the past and zone into Pashhow Marshlands. This should activate a cutscene. Once you do this, head over to the Corroded Door which should be around F-5 and select "Light in the Darkness" to enter the BCNM.
You will be zoned into Ruhotz Silvermines.
The Sapphirine Quadavs hang out in parites of 3 and the Sapphire Quadav hangs out on his own. IF you kill the Sapphire Quadav, the others will disband their parties and spread out. Careful, though, the Sapphire Quadav can use Benediction.
If you fail at the BCNM, you'll have to get another key from Blatherix for either 10 more pieces of chocolate or 1k. Also, anyone else going with you will need their own key.
Once you are done with the battle, return to Gentle Tiger. He will ask you some questions. Here's your cheat sheet for the questions:
After that, the quest will be complete.
