The Mining Deck  is the heart of the USG Ishimura. This is where asteroids and planet fragments are broken apart and smelted for valuable minerals. A 4-level deck, it is by far the largest deck on the Ishimura. Asteroids are brought in via an entrance on the third level and held in place by gravity tethers.

  • The Ishimura mining deck appears very briefly in Dead Space 2 as one of Isaac's flashbacks during his session with Foster Edgars. Also, during this flashback you can actually see the shadow of a roaming Necromorph Slasher against the decks walls.
