Removes materials from the ground in a 9x9 shaft and spits it out into an inventory around it. Materials are not sorted in any way when returned to the surface, leaving it up to the player to deal with the mess on conveyor belts.

When digging ore, the effective efficiency is 10%, the same as an un-upgraded basic ore extractor.
The following ores will be mined by the quarry:
