An abandoned mining station, once a source of wealth and industry to feed the worlds and works of humanity. A cursory scan indicates that it has been cold and dead for tens of cycles at the very least, possibly hundreds. Closer inspection may yield salvage.

–In-Game Description

Mining Stations may contain hull-mod modspecs and significant amounts of heavy machinery, organics, volatiles, and transplutonic ore. Gamma and Beta AI Cores may also be salvaged. The more potent drops from Mining Stations include the invaluable Synchrotron CorePristine Nanoforge, and Corrupted Nanoforge, all critical in the development of Colonies and their industries. They are commonly found in asteroid clusters, especially asteroid belts.


  • The minimum amount of crew and heavy machinery required to salvage a mining station is:
    • 230 crew and 80 heavy machinery.
