Astroneer - Hematite

astroneer hematite

Hematite is a natural resource that is only found on two planets in the game. It appears as a dark red crystal with spikes. As with other natural resources that are based on metals, it does not have a use outside of producing the metal using a smelting furnace. Hematite is used to produce Iron. 

Where To Find Hematite

Hematite can be found on Atrox and Clacio. It will not appear on any other planets, including the starting planet. On Atrox, you will find it in the caves and on Clavio you will find it in the ice dunes and mantle layers of the planet. 

Since this is a planet specific resource, it is not possible to obtain this resource using a soil centrifuge.
