Nickel is a common ore found on Fortuna III. It is abundant in the Dig Site and East Caverns.


Found in various mineral veins pushed to the surface by the same process that spawns veltecite, this material is still worth selling at the station.


Can be found all over Fortuna III especially as loot around the Dig Site and harvestable ores around the East Caverns
