Uranium ore is a resource found on the map. Instead of being smelted in a furnace, uranium ore must be processed in a centrifuge to produce uranium-235 and uranium-238, which is used to craft fuel for the nuclear reactor and in various types of ammunition.

Uranium ore is different from the other ores, as it requires sulfuric acid to be fed into the electric mining drill to mine it, at a rate of 10 sulfuric acid per 10 ore mined. Because of this, uranium ore cannot be mined by hand or by a burner mining drill, as it lacks fluid inputs. No additional sulfuric acid is consumed when additional products are created due to a productivity bonus from productivity modules or mining productivity. For example, with a 20% productivity bonus, 12 ore will be mined for every 10 sulfuric acid consumed. The ore has a green glow, making it easily seen at night.
