The Mineral Extractor is a module which extracts resources from terrain collected via the Canister. Currently, it can only filter normal Soil, but the developers stated that they are working on different types of Sediments.

There are two specific function of the Mineral Extractor:

  • Soil Storage: A total of 8 tanks of Soil are storable within the extractor's tank.
  • Clone: Some common terrain can be refined into a resource of choice; it will, however, require a sample resource for cloning, which will not be consumed.
    • Only a maximum of 8 resources can be cloned per operation; if less sediment is used, then it will only use a percentage of the total capacity.
  • Filter: Certain terrain however, which usually congregates around rare resources, can be refined further to gain even more of said rare resource

Below is a table summarising the results when a full sediment tank is processed:

Sample Resource Number of clones produced Percentage of Capacity Used
Icon Compound.png Compound 8 50%
Icon Resin.png Resin 8 50%
Icon Organic.png Organic 8 80%
Icon Ammonium.png Ammonium 8 80%
Icon Laterite.png Laterite 4 100%
Icon Malachite.png Malachite 4 100%
Icon Coal.png Coal 2 100%
Icon Titanium.png Titanium 1 100%
Icon Lithium.png Lithium 1 100%
