Coal is one of the Resources in Frostpunk. It is consumed to keep the Generator, Steam Hubs, and Heaters running, so it will be constantly consumed.

Sources[edit | edit source]

In addition to Scouting and Outpost Depots, the following locations are direct sources of Coal.

Coal Deposit[edit | edit source]

Coal Deposits appear near the edge of the crater and can be harvested with a Coal Mine. This mine will produce a nearly infinite supply of Coal.

Coal Pile[edit | edit source]

Coal Piles are the early method of acquiring coal. The city begins with several piles coal with a quantity of 500 Coal each. People can be assigned directly to the pile or to a nearby Gathering Post.

  • You may assign up to 15 people to each coal pile or 10 per gathering post.
  • The yield can be increased by Faster Gathering.

Buildings[edit | edit source]

Coal Mine[edit | edit source]

The Coal Mine can be used to mine coal from Coal Deposits.

Coal Thumper[edit | edit source]

The Coal Thumper can be used to infinitely create coal piles for harvest, however the thumper does not gather the coal from these piles. These coal piles behave identically to those that spawn around the city at the start.

Charcoal Kiln[edit | edit source]

The Charcoal Kiln can convert Wood to Coal.

Gathering Post[edit | edit source]

The Gathering Post can be used to gather coal from Coal Piles.

Dock[edit | edit source]

The Dock is only available in The Last Autumn. It can be used to ship in and create coal piles on the shore infinitely until sea traffic stopped. These coal piles then need to be gathered by assigning workers directly, with Gathering Post or with Reloading Station.
