With the above list of planets, you can farm plenty of Tantalum to craft weapon mods and ammo in Starfield. If you run out of resources while mining, you can always purchase them from different vendors in the game. Here are some of the vendors that sell Tantalum:

  • Jemison Mercantile: New Atlantis
