Deep Core Mining Reduces the possibility of a damage cloud appearing when mining Mercoxit by 20%, required to use deep core mining lasers.

With the highly variable prices of morphite, training Deep Core Mining is really only worthwhile for those already close to Exhumers V with Mercoxit Processing III/IV. Training Deep Core Mining beyond II is pointless as the Skiff mirrors the 20% damage cloud reduction with each level of Exhumers and will be mining outside of the damage cloud radius in the off chance that one forms.

However, if mining without perfect skills, make sure all jetcans and gang buddies are more than 10km away from the Mercoxit asteroid. The damage cloud does a good job popping cans.
