Beamdrill Mining is a technology that can be researched at the Nova Crystal Proc Ctr in Tech Level 2. It costs 100 Food and 50 Carbon, and lets Nova gatherers work 15% faster. It must be researched before Hvy Duty Beamdrill becomes available.
Like other gathering-enhancing technologies, this should be researched early to ensure a good flow of resourcces.
"Nova crystal miners will do the job more quickly after this Tech Level 2 upgrade is researched at your Nova Processing Centre."
