The Ender Quarry is a block added by Extra Utilities. It is designed to be a low lag alternative to the BuildCraft Quarry. It runs off Redstone Flux (RF), consuming 260RF/t at full speed. Instead of mining laterally, one layer at a time, like the Quarry, it mines vertically. The Ender Quarry does not break the block it mines, but replaces it with Dirt, without a block update, thereby preventing the lag caused by rapid block updates. The Ender Quarry self-chunkloads like the Ender-Thermic Pump, loading the chunk it is in, and the chunk it is currently mining. The Ender Quarry will emit purple 'portal' particles above the column it is currently mining, and when right clicked while running will show the percentage completion of the quarry to two decimal places, and the coordinates where it is currently mining. If the Quarry has completed or has nowhere to put items, it will stop running, but continue to draw power.


Once the Ender Quarry has been placed, an area needs to be specified for the Quarry to operate in. To do this there are two options; vanilla Fences or Ender-Markers.

Fences are straight forward. Place a fence directly in front of the Quarry, and then outline the boundary for the area in which the quarry will mine.

Ender-Markers are similar but also much easier when setting up a very large area to be mined. Three ender markers will be needed in total; the first directly in front of the Quarry, the second needs to be at the same y-level and in line along either the x or z axis of the first Ender-Marker, the third marker is the same as the second, just placed on the opposite axis to the second ender marker. If the ender-markers are placed correctly, purple particles will show the direction of the links to the other markers.

Once the boundary has been completed with either the fences or Ender-Markers, right-click on the Quarry. If everything is set up correctly the message 'Successfully Established Boundary' will be shown. Now that the area to mine is set, attach any upgrades that will be used with the quarry and add power and an inventory for the mined blocks to go to. A Tesseract can supply both power and receive items when placed on the top of the quarry.

Note: The blocks underneath the fences or Ender-Markers themselves will not be mined, only those inside the boundary.

At maximum speed, barring no energy shortages or storage back-ups, a 1000x1000 quarry will take approximately 5 Minecraft days to complete.
