    Gather materials at rare outcrops and bonepiles.

    Unlock The Guilding Lands first.

    Now, enter it. You need to raise Mining and Bonepile outpost to get Giant version of them, which happens when you mine from them. They regenerate with time, the more you mine, bigger they get. In the end you will get message that Giant Bonepile/Mining Outpost appeared. All you need to is to mine from those at least once (1 for mining, 1 for bonepile).

    To check progress, open Map and press R1 to go to Resource Information. You will see crystal and bone icons and their respected levels (also, when you mine, icon to mine start white and it slowly goes into red. Red means you are close).

    I've choosen region 12 and 13 where there is around 5 mining and 4 bonepiles. Simply mine from them until you can't, then find some safe spot for some minutes to pass. Soon, resources will replenish. Repeat until you get the biggest one and dig, dig, dig...It took me around 20+ per each to get the big one.

    You need to catch a Goldspring Macaque monkey inside Hoarfrost Reach region during Clear weather. That is the only time when they appear in the hotspring areas (any of those).

Having 6 can activate mentioned skill before you enter Hoarfrost Reach and raise your changed to get golden money.

    Now, area 2, 6 and 17 have a hotspring. Leave Palico at the camp, equip Ghille Mantile and visit those. If you see a golden monkey, be fast and carefull, he can run into the hole close to hotsprings. Catch him with your net and that is your trophy.
