    Where to Find Lithium in Subnautica

    Lithium from Subnautica.

    Your sources of Lithium in Subnautica are plentiful. You can find this raw material on land and underwater, within caves, on the seabed, or inside a Shale Outcrop, and you can also find a Large Resource Deposit of it.

    Here are the biomes you can explore for Lithium.

    • Blood Kelp Zone
    • Bone Fields Caves
    • Bulb Zone
    • Crag Field
    • Crash Zone Mesas
    • Deep Sparse Reef
    • Dunes
    • Grand Reef
    • Inactive Lava Zone
    • Jellyshroom Cave
    • Lost River
    • Bone Fields
    • Corridor
    • Ghost Forest
    • Junction

    • Mushroom Forest
    • Sea Treader’s Path
    • Sparse Reef
    • Underwater Islands

    For the Large Resource Deposits of Lithium, you should head to the Lost River, the Mountain Island, and the Mushroom Forest. Take note that you can’t harvest materials from Large Resource Deposits with your hand. You’ll need to have the Prawn Suit Drill Arm to break them down. A Large Resource Deposit of Lithium should contain 8 to 16 of them.
