Comes with a free Chrono miner
The Allied ore refinery is a resource processing building in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2.
The Allied ore refinery deploys with a Chrono Miner which, after harvesting ore, chronoshifts to the ore refinery and dump the ore into a pit in the building. The Allied Ore Refinery is equipped with a beacon that allowed Chrono miners to chronoshift to them at any time.
The mining and mineral processing technology and storage has progressed to the point where the refinery no longer has to divert its mineral excess to a mineral silo (or dispose of it otherwise) if the storage capacity reaches maximum, unlike the ore refineries from Second World War. This works on both the Allied and Soviet refineries. Taking over another refinery will not redirect its mineral load to other one's storage, as only the Allied spy is skilled enough to do such an arrangement. Mineral processing on both refineries can be augmented by the Allied derived ore purifier to increase the value of obtained resources.
