Ore Crawler 413-24

An Ore crawler mining on Lothal

Mining was the business of extracting mineral and metal resources from a planet via technology.


On Kessel, mining for spice took place at the dangerous Spice mines of Kessel. The planet Lothal was also subject to heavy mining following the creation of the Galactic Empire.

On Cynda, the moon of Gorse, thorilide was mined from crystalline caverns with baradium bisulfate.[1]

The Galactic Empire destroyed many of the natural resources of Lothal, replacing them with mines and machines.[2][3]

By 3 ABY, Lando Calrissian gained control of the tibanna-gas mining colony Cloud City on the planet Bespin.[4]
