Ark Lost Island Oil, Silica and Black Pearl Locations

In Ark Lost Island, your survival depends on your ability to collect resources to craft weapons and equipment. Oil, Silica, and Black Pearls are among the 14 collectible resources on the Ark Lost Island map. The following guide will go over the brief uses of these resources and their in-game locations.

Oil is an essential resource that can be refined into gasoline and used to make various items, including Industrial Cookers, Industrial forges, Grenades, Fabricators, vaults, etc. It can be mined from veins found underwater and in different oil rocks.

Silica Pearls are also important resources that will be needed later on to craft electronics and other advanced equipment. Like Oil veins, Silica Pearls are found on the ocean bed. You can find many of them in the sea across the eastern world border.

Black Pearls are the rarest resource in the game; however, you can still find a considerable amount on the Lost Island map. They are late-game items and are an essential ingredient for crafting Tek Tier items. Like the previous resources, these will be found in underwater caves.

Ark Lost Island Oil Spawn Locations

Oil can be extracted in each of the following ways:

Underwater Oil Rocks

You will find large underwater reserves of oil in several locations, so be ready to bring your diving equipment. Areas like the shallow sea region close to the Blue Obelisk have sufficient oil reserves.

Surface Oil Rocks

These rocks and oil veins are found in the desert regions of Ark Lost Island, and oil can be extracted through pumps. The Desert region on the map has rich oil veins that you can hit.

Volcanic Oil Rocks

Oil can also be found in veins and rocks found near Volcanic mountains. Oil can be extracted by mining these rocks with pickaxes.

Dung Beetles

You can also extract oil from Dung Beetle. Collecting dung beetles, taming them, and feeding them feces will convert them into oil and fertilizer.

Basilosaurus

Once tamed and kept in water, these creatures passively produce and reserve oil in their inventories.

All in-game locations for Oil veins are marked clearly with blue dots on the map below.
