Coal is a resource found in the world. It can power Coal Generators and vehicles and has a fuel value of 270MJ. The ability to utilize coal is unlocked in the same milestone as Vehicles and vehicle automation, allowing the engineer to expand greatly.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Coal may be located using the Resource Scanner after completing the tier 3 milestone "Coal Power". It can be mined by hand or by using any of the miners.

There are currently 31 Coal Resource nodes in-game; 19 normal, and 12 pure, 1 of those being blocked by removable boulders.[1] This means the upper limit of harvest rate is 22.200 Coal/min (Mk.3 miners, 250% overclock, Mk.6 belt).[2] The blocking boulders can be removed with Nobelisk Detonator.

*Note: The maximum rate with a Miner MK2 at 250 % is 600/min, whereas a Belt MK4 can only carry 450/min, so the maximum mined number is not possible to transport.
