I suppose it depends on what level of technology they have, how far along in
their exploration history they are, who's in charge of the mission and the
money, etc.

There are lots of discussions of mining operations in Sci Fi - both on Earth and
in space from "Victor Appleton II's" _Tom Swift's and his Atomic Earth Blaster_,
and Arthur C. Clarke's _2061: Odyssey Three_,  to Frederick Pohl's _Mining the
Oort_.

We have every level of technology, and still have people who dig with shovels.
Other people use 3D printers to make trinkets.  So I don't see a "conflict".

Envision your story and make it your own.  :)
