Ok, so I want to expand but I need wisp lanterns to do so. In order to make wisp lanterns, I need earth wisp, but to make that, I need coal. To get coal, I have to clear rocks, but I have no more rocks left to clear, and if I cant expand into new territory, I cant uncover more rocks. So....how do I get coal? and lots of it?

It comes from the mine, or you can buy rocks :)

Also, get your neighbours to send you earth wisps. Every extra one helps :)

Your best value is the large one. You would need more than 1 small one and that would make more chops using up your energy.

Having two sparkling mines is a must. They often drop coal and sometimes earth wisps.
Some people discussed their strategies about coal on this thread (http://forums.teamlava.com/showthread.php?43902-I-m-having-issues-gathering-coal!), you could read it or more ideas.

I get a fairly decent drop from the iron rich mine which is a good thing as its so expensive.

Is the iron rich mine different from the sparking mine? If so, how can I get it?

Yes it is different. You can only mine it 8 times before it disappears. In the market go to Nature menu then click on the Other tab. Scroll through till you find it.

I kind of entering into a gifting team-up with a few of my neighbors and gift one n another with wisp regularly.
I saw somewhere that we can receive 20 gifts per day (though I don't recall I got so many, max 3 daily I think
n I return 3 to my neighbors daily). I bought some rocks to chip them but that take much more time to turn to wisp then lanterns. Plus even if you hv the tinker camp, you only have 3 facilities to make the wisps n lanterns. So getting wisps save time! Any way that how I did it. Most inexpensive way in my opinion.

Or are you doing the dragon quest? I saved coal little by little since that burning amber took me long time to collect any way.
