In the third mission of the Modern Times campaign, I get the objective to export gold, yet, since my strategy always is start with boat loads of mines, I already mined ALL the gold on the island, so I have nothing left to export. Is there a way to still finish the objective or do I have to restart?

fwiw you can try playing with different strategies (farming, oil, etc). Most of them work pretty well though I always have the hardest time relying on tourism. –  z ' Sep 6 '12 at 18:29

I do believe it would be possible to import some gold, then switch back to exporting that gold. But you'll be losing a lot of money in the process and it won't be easy.

I'd suggest restarting, really. I don't like it either, but you sometimes find better ways to do things by rebuilding :-)

I tried doing that, I import 500 units of gold by putting my Jewelry factory on active, and as soon as they are delivered I fire all workers from it, but I haven't seen it export any additional gold (tried it 3 times already) –  user1593624 Sep 4 '12 at 9:55
    
I don't see any other way to export gold, if not by local mining or first importing it (hacking/trainers/etc excluded). So I would suggest starting again. –  Flater Sep 4 '12 at 10:51
