History and background[edit]

The system was owned by Metallurgias Generales SA (GenMett) who leased out sectors of the belt to independent miners.

In 999, GenMett was approached by McKenzie Extractions (MacEx), as it appears the system was finally exhausted of its more valuable minerals. A deal was agreed and the final hand over was set for 1102. Many of the miners, having lived there for generations, were unhappy with the idea of being evicted.

In 1101 a large deposit of platinum was discovered by one of the independent miners and within a few days GenMett pulled out of their deal with MacEx. Within weeks the system was swamped by a wave of new miners hoping to find another big strike. A few other smaller discoveries have been made, but no large ones.

The miner who found the original large platinum deposit invested her money in an entertainment module, and has made a small fortune selling imported entertainment to the locals.
