Ores are mined from Asteroids or Planets and can be processed in the Refinery. They can be mined with either a Drill or Hand Drill. They can also be found in the cargo holds of some pre-built ships, especially mining ships.
To process Ore you need a Basic Refinery, a Refinery or a Survival kit. In the Survival kit you need to Querry the production of Ingots, the Refinerys will pull the Ores from all connected Containers to process them. The yield of a Basic Refinery is 30% lower than that of a Refinery or Survival kit. Because of this it is recommended to not use a Basic Refinery for stone processing in the early game stages, as a Survival kit produces more Ingots per kilo of stone.
|Raw material||Refinery||Basic refinery||Survival kit||Refined material|
|Scrap Metal||80%||56%||-||Iron ingots|
- If you refine 1000 kg of Silicon ore in a Basic Refinery, you will get 49% of the weight in Silicon, which is 490 kg.
- If you refine 1000 kg of Silicon ore in a Refinery, you will get 70% of the weight in Silicon, which is 700 kg.
- If you refine 1000 kg of Silicon ore in a Refinery with 4 Yield Modules, you will get 140% of the weight in Silicon, which is 1400 kg.
