Coal is a natural resource in Mindustry. It is obtainable from drills and manual mining on some units, where it is used to make advanced materials such as Graphite.png Graphite and create power for Combustion and Steam Generators. It is a rather explosive and flammable resource, which will detonate and start fires when damaged on a container or conveyor.

Location[]

Coal can be mined from Coal-ore.png coal ore patches.

How to get coal?[]

Coal can be collected using:

  • Mechanical Drill Mechanical Drill (
