The long-range mineral scanner can automatically scan nearby areas with a radius of 30 tiles for precious mineral deposits.

The minerals are found on average once every 30 days.

When the scanner finds minerals an event will trigger notifying the player to go and mine the minerals.

Precious minerals found

When the player reaches the spot, a temporary map will be generated with a precious mineral lump in the middle. The possible minerals found are only be gold or jade

The minerals may be surrounded by pirates guarding the reserves or a manhunter pack that happens to be nearby.

Besides the minerals, you can also mine out anything else on the map, such as components or steel.

You have 10 days to mine everything before the caravan leaves. The countdown starts after every hostile unit is defeated.

Pirate defenders

A few pirates have surrounded the lump with a rudimentary base. They are easy to defeat and once done so the treasure is yours for the taking.

Manhunter pack

A pack of random manhunter animals will spawn near the mineral lump.
