DAV's Hope had some neat equipment, and I learned more about the miners. Apparently they were told to "Just keep mining" when things got dangerous. They followed orders, and the conditions continued to deteriorate. Eventually the mine collapsed. The Corporation ordered the mines closed and the location scrubbed. I don't know what happened to the personnel not trapped/killed by the mine, but the didn't nuke the site and seem to have left in a hurry.
At any rate, what I could find was mildly disappointing. And since every known Anarchy system seems to have solved famines, my only option is to keep looking. I've heard rumors of a crashed conda or two. Maybe they will have what I need?
