There are many types of deposit that can be found on your Home Island
Below is a list of all the deposit types which can be harvested on your Home Island, along with the building which harvests the deposit.
For maximum efficiency, and flow of resources, the building should be placed close to the deposit, and close to a Storehouse. The 'Number' column tells you how many of that deposit type can be found on the Home Island, and 'Geologist' column will show a tick if a Geologist is required to find the deposit.
Natural Deposits are always found on the map, but can become depleted, but never completely removed. When the deposit count reaches zero, the deposit stays, and can be replenished at any time.

The following deposits were never actually added to the game, yet during the early days of the Beta, the Geologist menu had possible searches for these if the player reached the impossible level 52. They were removed from the game before the search was ever enabled. The resources below are therefore only available as rewards from Adventures.
|Salpeter||Mine||Planned as a deposit found on PvP Islands|
|Titanium Ore||Mine||Planned as a deposit found on PvP Islands|
|Granite||Quarry||Cannot be found, but may be created with a Granite Pit.|
|Exotic Wood||Woodcutter||Cannot be found, but may be created with an Exotic Wood Tree School.|
The list below shows how many deposits there are in each sector. Where 2 numbers are shown, the first number is how many deposits can be found, and the second number (in brackets) shows how many deposit locations there are.
