Mining missions are missions which require you to mine special mission ores and then return these ores to your agent.
There are also 2 diferent types of ice (crystaline Icicle, Azure Ice) and 2 different types of gas (gamboge cytoserocin, chartreuse cytoserocin).
Most mining missions only have weak spawns usually 1-4 frigates in lvl 3s and 4s, though there is the possibility of faction spawn (it may be related to what area you are in). Some lvl 3s have weak cruiser spawns so an invulnerability field and small shield booster are reccommended along with a wing of combat drones.
There are 2 exceptions to this in lvl 4s where you will encounter multiple cruiser and frigate spawns that will build up over time if you do not keep killing them off. The first is a gas harvesting mission (like drones to a hive) but gas harvesting can be done in any ship with turrets so it's not much of a problem. The second is a ice harvesting mission (Ice Installation) which may prove a problem as you will have to do it in a mining barge.
