The Mining Collective is a massive multifunctional integrated mill & refinery that employs both pyro-metallurgical and electro-metallurgical processes to purify various types of raw and recycled metals.
The refinery mainly produces standard & ferro-fibrous armor plating; but also exports substantial quantities of various purified billets for outsource manufacturing.
The operation is located on a medium sized planet orbited by one captured M-type and five S-type asteroids. These satellites are very rich in various minerals and volatiles such as tungsten, osmium, iridium, gold and other siderophilic elements; which are harvested, beneficiated and transported to the surface for further processing.
Having an established mining infrastructure based upon its high concentrations of boron deposits, this planet was chosen to serve as corral, base world and processing station for both terrestrial and extraterrestrial mining operations.
