|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.
|Power Usage||30 MW|

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.
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.
With a non-overclocked Miner Mk.3 you will get the following mining speeds:
|Node Purity||Mining Speed |
Limits of the Mk.3 Miner[edit | edit source]
The Mk.3 Miner has one significant limitation in the Conveyor Belt Mk.6. As it currently stands, the Mk.6 Conveyor has a Transportation Rate of 900 units per minute. 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 exit slot in 41 Minutes and 40 seconds.
