Mining: General Information
Mining: Types of Minerals
In the Orb Vallis you can find nine different types of minerals. Of all of them, four are metals and five are gems. This minerals can be extracted in their natural form, but after you will have to refine them in the Foundry of your ship with the blueprints you can buy from Smokefinger. When you refine them you can use them as a resource when you craft gear (weapons, warframes and tools). This is why they are so important.
As for the gems you can obtain in the Orb Vallis you can give them a second use aside from refining them as a crafting materials. This second use is also important, and it is obtaining Solaris Standing Points.
Each unrefined gem can be exchange for standing talking with Smokefinger and selecting the option “Trade Gems For Solaris Standing”. The values of each gem vary depending on its rarity and goes from 50 to 1000 points.
