The Ancient Relics
In Motherload: Goldium, there are Ancient Blueprints buried in the ground. There is one for each part of your mining pod, and they are the best upgrades for your ship. The upgrades are buried somewhere between 4000 ft and the bottom, and they look like a blue parchment scroll. There is only one located on each map; once you find one, you must save and reload to find another one. The upgrades disappear after you beat the game, but you can obtain them again. The Multi-Drill is the only upgrade that is not buried; you must beat challenge mode in order to get it. The upgrades are as follows:
-Multi-Drill: Faster than Amazonite Drill; can drill through rocks.
-Regenerative Hull: Stronger than Energy-Shielded Hull; regenerates lost health slowly over time.
-Hyper-Drive: Faster than V16 Jag Engine; Allows unlimited teleportation to the surface.
-Fuel Integrator: Larger than Liquid Compression Tank; Collects fuel from gas pockets, but does not stop damage.
-Magma Converter: Stronger than Tri-Turbine Freon Array; Money is earned when you hit lava pockets, but does not stop damage.
-Portable Wormhole: Larger than Leviathan Bay; Give you virtually unlimited storage capacity.

Guardian (White Angel)
In Motherload: Goldium Edition, if you fly up to 10,000 feet, you will get a transmission from God, that says:
"Hast though tired of tunneling the depths before thy time?
Seek ye instead to soar the highest reaches of my heavens?
Return now to thy rightly domain - Carry with thee this guardian to aide thy journey."
After the transmission is done, you will receive a small, white angel that follows your pod. It will half any damage received, including lava and gas pockets and the final boss battle.
Oil-Bird (Black Angel)
After digging 500 feet in Motherload: Goldium, a small craft will appear over the ------ that looks like a small save pod, but flashes different colors. If you fly up to it, you will get a transmission from Martian Oilers, saying:
We've been observing your activities, and we'd like to offer you a proposition.
Martian Oil is saturated with the base constituent of the ancient fuel petroleum: Oil. We've taken a bird species native to Mars and genetically re-engineered and trained it to collect oil. The problem is he still can't dig up anything but worms! If you let him tag along to collect oil, we'll pay you for every Liter you collect.
After the transmission is done, you will receive a small, black angel that follows your pod. Every time you dig into a dirt square, you have a chance to receive a small amount of money. The amount of money you get grows depending on your depth.
