How to Harvest Lithium in Starfield

Mining of resources like lithium can be done via two methods in Starfield. The small deposit can easily be extracted by using a handheld cutter, while the larger deposit requires a mining outpost.

As you begin the game, the first method is already equipped by your character, the cutter. As you are traveling and exploring a planet, you can use a scanner to analyze lithium or other mineral deposits. Once you stumble upon one, just point your laser cutter at the resource and gradually cut through the mineral.
Outpost Mining Machinery
An outpost in Starfield can be set up for various uses, one of which can be mining as well. for this, all you need is a location with deposits of lithium, which can be located by using the scanner, an extractor to mine the lithium, a power source a container to collect all the resources, and a crew assigned to it.

Additionally, if you are much more focused on the storyline of the game and want to skip the farming part altogether and still want to acquire lithium, it can be purchased in the game from a Shop vendor available in the Starfield universe as these shops have enough supply. Below are some places where you can purchase lithium.
