Coal is an ore in Survival Beginnings.


The darkest of ores


Coal is used for making Steel and Gunpowder, and can be burnt if no other fuel is available. It is found in certain caves, most of which also contain iron, which is convenient for creation of steel tools, the second best tier of tools. It has a particularly long burn time however, making it somewhat useful for smelting and cooking, however, as wood and foliage are more common, coal is not used as often.


  • Coal is one of the few non-metals in the game, the other being stone and sulfur.
