Where to find Minerals and Materials

Where to find Minerals and Materials

All of the craftable items in Mass Effect Andromeda require several types of Mineral or Material to complete the crafting recipe. There are three distinct groups of crafting resources that include Minerals, Tech Materials and Bio Materials.

In this guide you'll find a complete list of each of the minerals and materials in the game, together with locations where you can find them.


To put it simply, Minerals must be harvested by the player using either the handheld Omni-tool or the mining drone from the Nomad (deployed via mining interface). Minerals typically appear off the beaten track so take time to explore the edges of the map for the telltale "clusters" of mineral deposits.

*Some Minerals cannot be mined and must be bought from vendors or found in crates, these Minerals have a blank location entry in the table below.
