The stone refinery is a medium sized building mainly used to convert stone rocks into refined stone blocks. It has a short build time due to its low resource requirements and build points. The Refined Materials Perk must be researched before this building becomes available.


Once constructed, the stone refinery can immediately support the employment of one nugget as a Stone Refiner. Another spot can be unlocked later in the future.

The stone refiner is responsible for collecting stone rocks, bringing them to the refinery building, and converting them into stone blocks.

The stone refinery is responsible for converting the small stone rocks, mined by your labor Nuggets, into a more refined resource. The stone blocks that are created from this building will then be stored on-site, or at a Warehouse.

2 stone rocks are required for each stone block to be created.

Clicking on the stone refinery will open its information panel which includes:

  • Currently hired nuggets.
  • Amount of pending stone rocks currently stored in the refinery.
  • Amount of finished stone blocks currently stored in the refinery.
  • The current conversion progress shown in percentage.
  • The current durability of the stone refinery itself.
  • The power and water requirement meters.
