The Mining Platform is deployed on an asteroid to allow mining of ore from it. It starts out as a mining platform ship, which deploys into a mining platform when it reaches an asteroid with available plots. The mining platform is then controlled by the mining ministry of the planet it was launced from. Once deployed a Ming Platform cannot be recalled. It can only be destroyed and a new Minining Ship can be launched to replace it.
The higher the level of the mining ministry controlling the mining platform the more ore is extracted.
Mining Platforms are a highly vulnerable but highly valuable resource of any medium to advanced empire. There are a number of things that can either cause their destruction or to restrict their usage.
