Cobalt is a resource.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Cobalt (Co) is a resource and one of the earth elements.

Game description[edit | edit source]

Mined from underground minerals, cobalt is found in plentiful supply in caves and caverns. Useful in the manufacture of Ion Batteries.

It is used in the creation of several technologies and structures, and can be processed in a Refiner to make the most of its inherent charge.

Sources[edit | edit source]

There are two main sources of cobalt:

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Items that contain Cobalt as a crafting ingredient:

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cobalt (derived from German kobalt, from kobold, which means goblin) is an element is only found in Earth's crust in chemically combined forms, save for small deposits of alloys from natural meteoric iron. Cobalt's name origin was superstitious with early cobalt miners and since cobalt's primary ores always contain arsenic, smelting the ore would oxidize the arsenic into highly-toxic and volatile arsenic oxide. Like in No Man's Sky, Cobalt is commonly used widely in lithium-ion battery cathodes in the form of lithium-cobalt oxide but nickel-cadmium and nickel-metal hydride batteries also utilize cobalt to improve nickel oxidation in batteries.
