Cobalt Ore is one of the resources in Space Engineers that are quite vital to progress forward, yet can also be difficult to find.
Space Engineers as a whole can be quite a handful to deal with, especially when first starting, so here are some pointers to help with finding Cobalt Ore.
Space Engineers Finding Cobalt Ore
Cobalt Ore is found in asteroids, beneath the surface of both planets and moons. You'll need to look for dark spots, as they indicate that ore is found underneath, after which you'll have to do a bit of drilling.
Some players say that the Ice Lakes in the Desert Biome or at the polar caps of planets and moons are a good spot for finding Cobalt Ore, as they make identifying the darker spots on the surface easier.
When looking for Cobalt Ore, or ore in general, it's worth keeping in mind that Space Engineers populates its world with various ore types based on random seeds which can make specific types be rarer than others.
If you can't find Cobalt Ore where you first spawn, moving around is a good idea. Ore detectors, particularly the larger ones, can also come in handy if you're having trouble.
Cobalt Ore in Space Engineers can be processed in the Refinery or Arc Furnace and turned into Cobalt Ingots (1000 kg of Cobalt Ore yield 240 kg of Cobalt Ingots).
