The Salvage Mine is a world structure that produces and dispenses Salvage into its inventory on a constant one-second cycle until either it runs out of Fuel (Diesel or Petrol) or its inventory fills up. Each cycle produces roughly one and a half Salvage running on Diesel (six or seven Salvage when running on Petrol).


A mine can be refueled by hand (by equipping a fuel can, then holding LMB) or by using a Fuel Tanker, it is much quicker to use a fuel tanker. Whilst fueled, it dispenses Salvage into the inventory at a constant cycle. Fuel type does not change the speed of a cycle, only the amount produced. A mine can holds up to 1,000 liters (or 10 cans) of each type of Fuel.

Mining function[]

Each cycle consumes one liter of Fuel, which means a single can of Fuel will run the mine for 100 cycles (1 minute and 40 seconds), and a full tank will run the mine for 1,000 cycles (16 minutes and 40 seconds).

  • At low efficiency it creates 1.5 salvage per cycle (every second).
  • At high efficiency it makes 6 salvage per cycle.

A stack of salvage takes 50 seconds using diesel or 3 stacks with Petrol. The mine is so fast that refueling by hand is not recommended at all. Even when being refueled by a fuel tanker it is able to create a large quantity of resources before refueling is completed.

Resource Collection[]

The salvage produced can be retrieved by hand using Left Click on the salvage icon on the right side of the Mine's interface, one stack at a time. From the driver seat of a truck you can use Shift + Left Click to retrieve 3 stacks at a time.

There is an invisible loading area in front of the mine that allows to place containers to transfer resources directly, similar to the loading area at a Refinery. To find the exact spot, simply aim the crane's arm that's lifting the container near the front of the mine until your cursor becomes a gear symbol.


  • Check a mine's inventory and fuel status from the map by hovering your mouse pointer over the mine's icon.
  • The Salvage Mine is the fastest Automatic Mine.
  • It's not recommended to use Petrol in these as Salvage is quite common and petrol can not be produced in large enough quantities for sustained production.
