Alpha Centauri Wiki

A mine increases the minerals output of a square:

  • Flat squares: +1 minerals
  • Rolling squares: +1 minerals
  • Rocky squares: +2 minerals (+3 if road)

The nutrient output of the square, however, is reduced by 1 (cannot go negative). On squares that aren't rocky, a farm can offset this.

As on Earth, where veins of valuable ore were discovered, mining operations soon followed.
