The AMS testing site is a location in the Ash Heap region of Appalachia. Its main purpose was to search for new veins of ultracite.


An abandoned testing site where Atomic Mining Services perfected their excavation technology and non-human workforce,[Non-canon 1] the site was shut down after the test launch went awry and produced no usable ultracite.[1]


Entering from the main entrance from the west, there is a small metal building to the north, the interior contains minor loot. A rail track runs south to north through the middle of the site, from a large metal building to a sealed mine entrance[Non-canon 1] used to search for ultracite. Rail cars along the track are loaded with barrels of nuclear waste.

The large metal prep building's interior has a weapons workbench on the eastern wall, a tinker's workbench, chemistry station, and two power armor stations. The furthest power armor station may have a chassis with T-series power armor. Information on the site can be found on a note across the room from the power armor stations. The exterior southern wall of this building has a fusion generator with a possible fusion core to loot.

Two beige and orange pods can be found east of the rail track. The first contains a searchable chem box and a safe (Picklock 2). The second contains a searchable chem container.
