Mining is the primary reason Emergent set its sights on Atmos. Geological surveys suggested the planets crust housed a wealth of natural resources for Emergent to mine. As such, mining remains a common job in the lives of Atmos residents.
Players can dedicate their Exo to mine land for OREs for certain periods of time. Each plot has different ORE distributions, so players receive different types and quantities of OREs depending on the plot they're mining.
