Morkite is a common mineral that appears in every Planetary Region and Mission Type. Once at least 80 Morkite is collected in the teams depository, a Resupply Pod can be requested. The Resupply Pod has four resupplying racks, one on each side. Each rack will refill Half of any Dwarves ammunition, fuel, grenades, and health when used.
