There are various resources available that can help boost an empire. The two types of resources are Galactic Resources and Trade Resources.

Galactic Resources

Galactic resources are a type of resource found throughout the galaxy. They are mined by space stations equipped with a mining module. Each resource allows you to build special, powerful components on prototype ships or special, powerful social buildings on your colonies. Synthetic (Yor) and silicon (Slyne) civilizations are especially dependent on resources, since synthetic civilizations require durantium and promethion to manufacture new population, and silicon civilizations require promethion to construct cities to support larger populations.

Trade Resources

Trade resources are a type of resource found on planets. They provide benefits to any player that has them. If you have one of these resources on a tile on one of your planets, you also have the option of destroying the resource, thus freeing up the hex tile for other buildings.

Bonus to Adjacent Improvements

Each trade resource on a planet provides an adjacency bonus to surrounding tiles.

Colony benefits

Each trade resource has a bonus associated with owning the resource. This is applied to the colony the resource is located on. The receive the bonus an improvement must be build on the trade resource. The bonus grows as the improvement gets upgraded.
