Morkite is a basic Mineral exclusive to the Mining Expedition mission in Deep Rock Galactic. The primary objective in Mining Expedition consists of gathering a certain amount of Morkite, ranging from 200 to 400 units of it. Morkite will appear in your inventory, much like many other resources, and must be deposted into the M.U.L.E to count towards the primary quota.
