Gold

The most seductive metal of them all. Millions have died in attempting to feed the endless human thirst for gold. This soft metal is little use on its own, but is strikingly beautiful and very rare.

Gold is a very beautiful and expensive resource. Can sometimes be found off the bodies of raiders, as well as those who pop out of random cryptosleep caskets in buildings around the map, but the primary source is gold veins. You can sell gold to certain traders to get a staggering amount of cash, or craft it into golden sculptures that are perhaps the most valuable items in the game. It can also be used to create extremely beautiful furniture and structures.

Plasteel

Advanced spacer tech structural material. Plasteel is extremely strong due to its unique molecular structure.

The strongest material in the game. Used for a lot of high tech stuff, especially ship engines and other modules, which are needed to build a spaceship to escape the planet and win the game. Can be obtained by trading, disassembling a dead Mechanoid, or by mining Compacted Plasteel deposits.

Silver

This metal is mostly used as a commodity currency. It can also be used for making attractive decorations.

Silver is used for trading with traders, and as a construction material. A decent amount of starter silver is among the wreckage of the colonists pods at the beginning of a new embark. More silver can be found through mining, trading, and defeating raiders.

Steel

An iron-carbon metal alloy used for building structures, tools, and weapons.

Steel is the primary resource for mid- to late-game construction, and is therefore vital. Steel can be found in steel bearing rock on the terrain and must be mined by your colonists. It can also be purchased from available ships at the Comms Console, from another colony or by smelting steel slag dropped from supply ships and broken machines. It is also dropped by some pawns, most notably the mechanoids. Raiders also have a chance to drop steel, among other things. Steel is one of the most valuable resources and is used in almost all forms of structures including Walls, Defensive Structures, Production Tables and more.

Uranium

"An extremely hard, dense metal. While it is best known for its use powering nuclear reactors, its physical properties also make it excellent in some roles as a tool, weapon, or armor."

Uranium can be traded for profit, crafted into sculptures, or used to build cryptosleep caskets. It can be found in uranium deposits inside hills and mountains and mined accordingly.
