Mark ore with the Peppermint tool and construction bots will start mining it. Or enable Nougat Mining mode and it'll happen automatically!

About

Peppermint Mining is all about mining with robots! Mark ores with the peppermint mining tool and if roboports are in range the ore will be flagged for mining. Alt-select ores to remove them from the list of ores to be mined. If robots are idle and the roboport is fully powered, robots will go to work. If a large construction is ordered, mining will be paused to give construction priority.

Alternatively, enable Nougat Mode and robots will mine ore automatically!

Features

Mining only uses surplus robots.
Mining only uses surplus energy.
Mining takes into account productivity research.
Mining this way DOES make pollution
Can be done passively (Nougat mode) or actively (Peppermint mode, marked with peppermint tool)
