Uranium Uranium is an Atomic Era Strategic Resource in Civilization VI. It is revealed with Combined Arms.

Uranium Uranium can appear on any type of land tile, with the possible exception of Floodplains, Oases, and Marshes.


Uranium Uranium is the last Strategic Resource in the game. It has three uses: enabling some of the most powerful units in the game (the Modern Armor and the Nuclear Submarine in vanilla Civilization VI and Rise and Fall, and the Giant Death Robot in Gathering Storm), allowing the construction of nukes (great for the warmonger), and being used as fuel for the Nuclear Power Plant. It is also a great Production Production booster, being quite a bit easier to find than previous resources like Aluminum Aluminum and Oil Oil.

Interestingly, like its cousin Oil Oil, Uranium Uranium has a fairly large bias towards spawning on Tundra and Snow tiles. This can be a handy source of Production Production for cities attempting to build the Amundsen-Scott Research Station, or a fiery castigation for the enemies of Russia or Canada.

Civilopedia entry[]

With 92 protons and electrons, six of the latter valence electrons, uranium is a silver-white metal that is slightly radioactive. The use of uranium dates back to at least 79 AD, when it was used to add a yellowish color to ceramic glazes. But Enrico Fermi found a more malevolent use for the metal; his research in 1934 led to the discovery of “nuclear fission.” And in December 1942, another team led by Fermi as part of the Manhattan Project initiated the world’s first self-sustained nuclear reaction. A few years later, thanks to uranium, the skies above Hiroshima lit up.
