    There are 15 different resources or raw materials in the game and not all of them can be found on Sylva, the starting planet so you're going to have to build a shuttle and visit some other planets.
    Make sure that you actually harvest some of each resource with the terrain tool. Using the soil centrifuge, finding resources in wrecked space ships or mining with a rover & drill combo doesn't count.

    The resourses are:

    Compound
    Resin
    Organic
    Quartz
    Clay
    Ammonium
    Graphite
    Astronium - found near the core of most planets.
    Lithium - Found on Vesania & Novus)
    Laterite (smelts to Aluminium)
    Sphalerite (smelts to Zinc) - Found on Sylva & Desolo
    Malachite (smelts to Copper) - Found on Sylva & Calidor
    Wolframite (smelts to Tungsten) - Found on Desolo & Calidor
    Hermatite (smelts to Iron) - Found on Novus & Glacio
    Titanite (smelts to Titanium) - Found on Vesania & Glacio

    The achievement didn't unlock for me when I though it would, when I finally found Titanite on Vesania. For some reason the game didn't count the Malachite I'd gathered on Sylva. I had to go to Calidor and dig up some Malachite there to unlock this achievement. The same thing happened with smelting copper, it didn't count the stuff I produced on Sylva only the nuggets I made on Calidor.

    Jeuxvideo60Got it and pretty sure I never mined Astronium.

    FshguyJust a warning... using a terrain mod tool while mining will not make it count either, my last one was Hermatite...

    bswoboda06Meanwhile I seem to be stuck at 92% with no idea what’s missing.

    SergeusIt seems like both Malachite *and* Sphalerite on Sylva don't count. I was missing one (based on my completion %) and it unlocked after I mined Sphalerite on Desolo, even though I'd definitely mined a lot of Sphalerite with the Terrain Tool on Sylva.

    MONEYHANDSx22I believe I've figured out why some materials weren't counting, though perhaps there could be other reasons as well. I found that the counter only incremented if the material was mined directly into your backpack. If you mine it when your backpack is full and it goes to the ground it did not count for me.

    CraziDutchmanI was stuck at 92% as well, had to mine Hermatite on Glacio in order to have it pop. I have previously mined it on Novus it didnt trigger there.
