Thorium is a rare resource in Mindustry. It is found in a handful of campaign maps (usually in low quantities), where a Laser Drill or Airblast Drill is required to mine it - No other units or drills can. Thorium is used in building advanced blocks and walls, high-damage ammunition, and in reactors for mid-game power.
Thorium can be produced in very low quantities (11.1%) with the Disassembler where Scrap is available. Although this is conversion process requires a lot of power.
- In Version 4.0, the Tau Mech was the only mech which could mine thorium, at a very slow rate. In Version 6.0, no units can.
- In real life, thorium (Th) is a weakly radioactive, fertile metal which is being considered for nuclear energy.
