A mining facility

Mining was the business of mineral and metal excavation and extraction. Many planets, such as Peragus II, Ord Cestus, or Bespin, were constantly mined. The Expansion Region got its name as the planets there were constantly mined when first discovered. Mining was an important source of credits.

Some mining was conducted using hand-held lasers.
