History and background[edit]

Initial explorations indicated a rich deposit of lanthanum. This turned out to be a cruel hoax for the thousands of prospectors who flocked to the system eager to make their fortunes and in the end lost all they had in trying to support their operations. This incident has worked its way into a local saying which is added to the end of sentences where the speaker is expressing disbelief at another statement: "..and there’s more substance in an Iashan strike!"
