I just found out I have over 900 Thorium:

enter image description here

I don't know where I got it from, nor what it does (nor did I know it was in the game). I suppose I got it from some trades and oversaw it.

How can I get Thorium and what can it be used for?


I don't know how you got it, but, usually, Thorium would be created from the Workshop by processing 250 units of Uranium. You first have to unlock it by researching the Thorium technology.

Thorium allows you to build:

  • Tectonic (Building, Space)
  • Antimatter Fission (Upgrade, Workshop)
  • Thorium Reactors (Upgrade, Workshop)
  • Thorium Engine (Upgrade, Workshop)

In addition, the Thorium Reactor workshop upgrade will cause Reactors to consume Thorium at the rate of 0.25/tick, which is the only way to create Thorium Consumption.

  • how much uranium gives how much Thorium? I can't find thorium in my Workshop tab. – RudolfJelin Oct 25 '16 at 19:38

    Thorium is a post space-age item. It takes 250 Uranium, and requires explicit Thorium research to unlock. Do you even have access to Uranium? – Nelson Oct 26 '16 at 1:43
  • @RudolfL.Jelínek I just performed a quick search over the latest source snapshots and haven't found any way to get thorium, other than producing it in the workshop. Maybe someone will enlighten us on the wiki at some point (or post an answer here). – Der Hochstapler Oct 26 '16 at 8:04
  • In addition to the accepted answer, you can also consume Thorium in your Thorium Reactors, so that it has a regular rate of consumption. I haven't actually unlocked that yet, but that's what it says in the tooltip. – ChronoD Oct 24 '18 at 18:22
  • @ChronoD Feel free to edit the answer and add the information :) – Der Hochstapler Oct 25 '18 at 14:27
