You can build an Ore Extractor T1 using 2x Osmium, 1x Super Alloy, 1x Aluminium, 1x Titanium, and 1x Iridium Rod at 155 ╬╝Pa. Pressure. At that Pressure point, you’ll be able to build several big machines, including Ore Extractors. Once you have the Ore Extractor, simply place it on a location, and it will start mining minerals automatically. Keeping track of where you place the machine is essential, as it will only mine one mineral native to the area. That said, Ore Extractor T1 can mine the below-mentioned minerals:

  • Alumunium
  • Cobalt
  • Iron 
  • Iridium
  • Magnesium
  • Silicon
  • Sulfur
  • Titanium

Ore Extractor T2 is a more powerful version of the T1, and it can mine rarer minerals compared to the prion one. You can build an Ore Extractor T2 using 3x Osmium, 1x Super Alloy, and 1x Iridium Rod at 364.50 mPa. Pressure. Ore Extractor T2 can mine the below-mentioned minerals:

  • Alumunium
  • Cobalt
  • Iron 
  • Iridium
  • Magnesium
  • Silicon
  • Sulfur
  • Super Alloy
  • Titanium
  • Uranium
  • Zeolite

As mentioned before, the location you place the Ore Extractor will determine the mineral it will mine, so keep track of the site. Furthermore, building a small outpost near the mining location is better, allowing you to refill Oxygen, Water, and Food comfortably. If an Ore Extractor is no longer in use, you can remove it by building and placing Shredder in its vicinity.
