The Extractinator is an item added in the 1.2 update. It turns Silt, Slush, and desert fossil into more valuable items like Ores, Coins, Gemstones, or even Amber or an Amber Mosquito (which are unavailable in any other way). As of the 1.3 update you can now use Desert Fossils with the Extractinator to also have a chance of getting Sturdy Fossils.


The possible output result of the Extractinator does not seem to vary based on the block used. Possible outputs include:

Test output with 999 Silt

  • 15 Amber
  • 03 Diamond
  • 03 Amethyst
  • 04 Ruby
  • 06 Topaz
  • 07 Sapphire
  • 46 Platinum Ore
  • 45 Tungsten Ore
  • 45 Gold Ore
  • 59 Silver Ore
  • 46 Lead Ore
  • 58 Iron Ore
  • 43 Tin Ore
  • 34 Copper Ore

A placed Extractinator.


  • A very easy way to get a lot of items would be to make 2 new worlds, find snow biomes in them and then search for slush in each one for about 1 hour each.
  • Equipping the Brick Layer accessory speeds up block placement speed, allowing for faster conversion of the compatible block to loot.
