Miner Mk.3
Miner Mk.3.png
Extracts solid resources from the resource node it is built on.
The normal extraction rate is 240 resources per minute.
The extraction rate is modified depending on resource purity. Outputs all extracted resources onto connected conveyor belts.

The Miner Mk.3 is the improved version of the Miner Mk.2 which mines at 400% speed. It is a building used to extract ore resources (Iron Ore, Copper Ore, Limestone, etc.) from resource nodes around the map.

It is unlocked after completing the Tier 7 Milestone: Bayer Process.

Mining Speed[edit | edit source]

The formula for Mk.3 Miner mining speed is:

(mining speed)=4*(purity modifier)*(overclock percentage)*60

Purity modifiers; Impure = 0.5x, Normal = 1.0x, Pure = 2.0x.

The mining speed of a Miner Mk.3 is:

Node Purity Mining Speed
(Ore/min)

Impure 120 180 240 300
Normal 240 360 480 600
Pure 480 720 960 1200

Overclocking[edit | edit source]

The Miner Mk.3 can be overclocked up to 250% speed, at the cost of greatly increased power consumption.

25 %50 %100 %150 %200 %250 %
Energy (MW)3.39.93057.490.9130

Running a Miner Mk.3 at 50% yields the same amount of resources as a Miner Mk.2 with slightly reduced energy consumption (9.9 MW instead of 12 MW).

Running a Miner Mk.3 at 25% yields the same amount of resources as a Miner Mk.1 with slightly reduced energy consumption (3.3 MW instead of 5 MW).

Limits of the Mk.3 Miner[edit | edit source]

The Mk.3 Miner extraction speed on a pure node is limited by the throughput of Conveyor Belt Mk.6. As it currently stands, the Mk.6 Conveyor has a Transportation Rate of 900 units per minute.[citation needed] In contrast the Mk.3 Miner can produce 1,200 units per minute on a pure resource node with overclocking set to 250%. The maximum clock rate the Mk.3 Miner should be set at on a pure node is calculated as follows:

(mining speed)=480*(overclock percentage)/100=900 | *100

90,000=480*(overclock percentage) | /480

(overclock percentage)=187.5 -> 188%

This will overproduce by 2.4 units per minute, filling up the miners output cargo slot in 41 Minutes and 40 seconds.
