Miners from Banga were stationed to work here and gather ore. While under the persona of Miner #101 and Miner #99, Kat and Syd respectively, were tasked to work in Zone 2, Block 3 to mine for ore. On their way to the work-site, a gravity storm (which Kat believed to be similar encountered at Neu Hiraleon) strong enough to call off the entire operation appeared; however, Kat and Syd ignored the evacuation order in the hopes of bringing ore back so that they would finally receive their food rations and end their hunger.
The gravity storm busted the pressure seals on their grav-suits, which resulted in them ditching the suits. Knowing they would not last long without their grav-suits, they attempted to escape the mining site. After a large debris separated the path back to the drop-site, they were stopped by a dead end, though Lisa appeared with her air-bike and managed to save them.
This mining site is very similar, if not identical, to Mining Site 0 in terms of aesthetics and overall layout. Because of plot reasons however, there isn't much to do in the way of actual gameplay; the player won't be able to explore the mining site, though rotation of the camera will allow players a good look at what is presented. The initial trek through the Mining Site is viewed through Kat's own eyes (first-person view).
