Mining is the main way for the character to collect resources in No Man's Sky. The character's multi-tool mining beam or starship weapon are used to mine rocks, crystals, or asteroids. The elements that are mined can be used to build new technology, charge devices in the character's exosuit, multi-tool, or starship, or can be sold at trading posts for units.
