General Overview[ | ]

Silicon mines can only be used to gather silicon. An silicon mine can only be constructed from a claimed asteroid. These cannot normally be removed from the sector where they originally reside. Silicon is used in a wide variety of applications throughout the galaxy.

Station Manufacturing Process[ | ]

Silicon produced at this type of mine is used in the following applications:


Semi Conductor Manufacturer, Solar Cell Factory, Transformator Factory

Construction[ | ]

Cost to produce: 12,000,000 credits.

Production[ | ]

This mine produces the following resources per cycle:

Name Quantity Volume Avg. Price Illegal? Dangerous?
Silicon 4 1 500 No No

Silicon mines have a default cycle time of 20 seconds per cycle. This can be reduced to the minimum cycle time of 15 seconds by adding 134 production capacity worth of assembly blocks.

Profitability[ | ]

This mine's profitability is an average of 2000 credits per cycle.

Version History[ | ]

Prior to April 2020 the Silicon mine could have a longer production cycle and was split into more productions per channel to compensate for that, which in return reduced its production to a similar length as if it had a 15 second window.

Trivia[ | ]

Due to a translation error, this facility had originally been named "Silicium Mine".
