Minerals come in a variety of quality levels; this is shown as
L<qualityLevel> after the name. Higher quality levels are more valuable, as they can be refined into large quantities of lower quality minerals at a Mineral Separator.
Quality level N x1 refines into Quality level N-1 x10.
The selling price of mineral is based on the quality.
- LV1 is worth 10 cr
- LV2 is worth 100 cr
- LV3 is worth 1000 cr
- LV4 is worth 10000 cr
- LV5 is worth 1 million credits
Minerals are refined by using a Mineral Separator . Put the minerals in the inventory of the Factory Input linked to the separator, and they will be processed into the next lower quality assuming both are powered.
