If I was looking for Alahazi, how would the alahzi vehicles help over a squad of hogs? otherwise, how would I fare in general with the squad of hogs with locating stuff? assume its Comp ops 4. I've read and reread the Mining rules, and I still cannot get a good chance predicted.
Cheers and thanks

Basically, propecting for any material, each terrain grid will have a set threshold value that your comp op/mining sensors need to beat in the prospecting equation. If you don't find anything, then it is likely that you need a higher of either of those two (or both) in order to beat th value needed and find the material deposit. Without increasing either of those two, re-prospcting will achieve nothing except wasted time and money.
Even with current Ground Hogs and a comp ops of 5, a lot of terrain will have no deposits. I am not sure if that s simply because there is none, or their threshold value is just too high for current entities, and we need to wait for R&D to get vehicles with more mining sensors.
