History

Outpost 311 was the first mining operation set up within the asteroid belt, and is known as the forerunner of the current rush of mining ventures exploiting the asteroid belt’s natural abundance of rare elements and minerals. The asteroid, which accommodates the refuelling post, has some remaining mineral deposits, however, as other metal-rich asteroids provided more abundant and more economically exploitable resources the outpost was abandoned 2039.

Specifications

Outpost 311 is built within an asteroid using the existing complex of mine shafts to house its construction. This means that Outpost 311 is able to provide .3 earth gravity as the outpost is within a spinning asteroid.

Because of its bunker-like construction, Outpost 311 provides security and protection. You will feel safe from unlawful raiders (space pirates) due to the hyper-secure layout and design. Cosmic rays are also deflected by the dense rock of the asteroid.

At approximately 24 kilometres in diameter, the asteroid is silicate-based with originally 47 per cent iron ore. Since the completion of mining at the site, the remaining iron ore is around 10 per cent. Outpost 311 covers approximately 1200 metres square, with some tunnel access via EVA suit only.
