To create tools that are more complicated than a stone axe or a mortar and pestle, you’ll need to do some mining. Here’s what you’ll need to create usable metals:

  • A Pickaxe to mine ores;
  • A Stone Furnace to process ores.

Other things to keep in mind:

  • Some ores don’t require smelting to be used. Furthermore, raw ore is a requirement for some of the recipes.
  • If you want to create tools (also knives and bow/crossbow ammo) with your smelted ores, you’ll also need to create an Anvil Bench.
  • Higher-tier ores require stronger Pickaxes to mine and higher-level furnaces to process — this is noted in the table below.
  • You will need the Machining Bench or the Fabricator to do a lot of crafting work with rarer metals.
  • Stone and Oxite can be picked up off the ground as well as mined from deposits.
  • Hidden caves have blocked entrances that yield stone when mined.
  • It’s possible to see some of the nodes exclusive to the caves outside of them, in close proximity to the entrance.
