Yes, you can...the trick is to merge with a fleet that is already mining

I'm pretty sure you don't have to merge, just have orders to remote mine waypoint 1, and you should be all set. Test if you need to be 100% sure of course.

hmm..the OOE agrees with you (merging is after WP1 even)...damned if I know where I got that from then.

Probably from the merge and heal on arrival.

Leit is correct.

Stargating does not affect AR remote mining. This is VERY cool for cutting your MM, as it means if any planet doesn't have minerals to cover it's build, you can simply gate in enough miners to make sure it does. Those miners will mine the minerals to support the production in that very same year. POWERFULL trick. No merge tricks needed, just make sure the wp1 orders are to mine.

Note this quirk only works when gating - regular movement will prevent mining.
