Craft new mining robots which can be used in Robot Mining Sites to mine resources for you.
Every Mining Site is a passive provider chest and contains additional entities with it:
- Controller: a lamp which can control whether the mining should be enabled or not
- Robot chest: Put or take mining robots in this chest (The mining robots belong to a special mining force and can thereby not be mined directly)
- Mining port: That's where the robots start. It requires at least 90% charged energy to start robots. (That's for safety such that robots don't switch to other roboports when power runs out.)

Features:
- 2 technologies for mining sites (Normal size 10x10, large 20x20 and extra 40x40)
- technologies for mining robots speed (up to 200% levelled, then infinite)

Spoiler:
Never run out of resources (but maybe energy...) ;)
