Are there any requirements besides those in the rules for using explosives in mining operations?
Do they have to be assigned in any specific way for commander and carrier?
Can they be owned by the mine owner or do they need to be owned by the Mining faction?
Or is all that needs to be done, dropping them in the mine, or assigning the ship/facility within the city to the mine?

I've placed the charge in the mine, but the mine inventory still shows 'explosives/none'.

Thank you for your time..

Stockpile Links for mines need to be accessible to the Operator or the Managing Faction.

It shouldn't matter who owns the Explosives, as long as they're in the mine or a linked entity.

I recommend fully documenting the setup (ie EVERYTHING, not just "I've placed the charge in the mine,") and bugbasing it. While waiting, toss that explosive on a ship, link the ship, and check if it shows up.

I've got about a day till the mine produces so I'll hold off from making any premature reports till then. Thanks Kay.

Dont be posting this to that bug. That bug is about the Latex that is broken and has nothing to do with the functionality of explosives. Start a new one about that.

When I used an explosive last it worked fine. I placed the explosive in the mine and then selected the type in the drop down window and a week later it exploded :P.... rather interesting really.

I used framecharge versus blaststicks but from what I read should also work.

It seems to make the explosives appear and be utilized the current mining process must be stopped and the mine re started after filling in the 'use explosives' box/portion.
Hope this helps the next curious miner.
Thanks you all for your responses, Happy New Year..
