Thank you for the welcome NephraTari.
There is no way that we could have a base on another planet, i dont think we could do it. We have the technology to mine, but its the fact of safety
for the workers doing it on another planet.
We would be limited to working times, as you will only be able to store so much oxygen in a tank.
We don't have the technology to cultivate the planet in order to make the air breathable.
So in a nutshell, we wouldnt try to mine on other planets, not for a long time.
