The Genesis expansion for ARK: Survival Evolved introduces a brand new map with five new biomes. The resources are scarce and some are so rare that they only appear at certain spots in a single area.

Here we’ll go over where to find the largest deposits of ores and additional nodes that aren’t as abundant, but can still be explored for some extra resources.

Some biomes are more rich in ores than others. If you’re looking to find as many resources as possible, then focus on Bog and Volcanic biomes first.

Arctic Biome Resources

  • Coordinates: 70.6 – 33.1

You’ll find lots of metal at the base of the mountain. There are also some metal rocks scattered along the path.

  • Coordinates: 76.5 – 32.4

There is a pathway going along the mountain, which produces a ton of crystal ores, which you can mine for gems.

Additional nodes: 72-36; 75-31; 70-31; 70-36; 70-32; 82-18; 86-26; 73-13.

Bog Biome Resources

Metal and Gems
  • Coordinates: 76.6 – 58.1

Start at the southwestern edge of the Bog biome and look around tall trees. You will find lots of huge metal nodes ready to be mined.

Look under the trees and find some green gems as well.

Mushrooms and Honey
  • Coordinates: 60.8 – 72.8

Climb up the tree branches and locate a whole habitat of rare mushrooms: Aggeravic, Aquatic, Ascerbic, Auric.

Also, check out the top branches for some bee hives full of honey.

Gas, Sap, and Absorbent
  • Coordinates: 84.0 – 74.0

Locate a bunch of poisonous trees that exhume sap and gas. You just need to run up to them to be able to collect resources and still survive.

Fungal Wood
  • Coordinates: 87.0 – 80.8

Not too far from the poison area you will discover fungal trees that produce fungal wood. These are safer than poison trees, so collect as much as you can.

Additional nodes: 54-72; 68-78; 67-75; 76-73; 80-70; 81-82; 54-68.

Lunar Biome Resources

  • Coordinates: 52.7 – 32.4

Here is one of the new rarest resources: Ambergris. You can mine it from green glowing stones scattered around. There are some metal stones as well.

Gas and Oil
  • Coordinates: 30.5 – 35.5

Come along the gas rivers and collect all the oil and gas that have been accumulating here for ages.

  • Coordinates: 19.8 – 23.5

Seek for obsidian stones along the edges of small floating islands. They aren’t as abundant as volcanic, but there’s still plenty.

Additional nodes: 19-28; 22-13; 51-38; 53-35; 46-23; 48-14; 33-26.

Ocean Biome Resources

  • Coordinates: 20.8 – 47.1

There are plenty small islands around with lots of metal rocks. Just hop on one or two and start mining.

  • Coordinates: 35.8 – 46.3

Most obsidian in this biome can be found only on the bottom of the ocean, so dive in and try mining under the water.

Silica Pearls
  • Coordinates: 19.4 – 52.7

These rare pearls can be mined from huge shells that are stuck to the bottom of the ocean. Hit them a couple of times and they will spit out the pearls.

Additional nodes: 23-46; 28-47; 32-46; 32-44; 36-44; 40-46; 24-54.

Volcanic Biome Resources

Obsidian and Element Shards
  • Coordinates: 27.2 – 73.3

Climb up a rocky hill and find a whole area of obsidian stone and some red crystal formations that produce element shards.

  • Coordinates: 25.5 – 76.6

This is a perfect spot for mining sulfur, which spawns under or near volcano mountains. Just go under the mount into the caves and collect as much sulfur as you need.

  • Coordinates: 47.5 – 80.0

This area in the southern edge of the biome is completely soaked in oil, so it’s going to be really easy to collect it here.

Black Pearls
  • Coordinates: 20.4 – 78.2

Arrive at a volcanic cave and go under the mountain. On the bottom of the cave you’ll find lots of black pearls scattered on the ground.

Additional nodes: 18-81; 16-87; 17-88; 30-85; 38-85; 48-75; 46-72.
