    Since we have to dig into the ground to get ores, if no hot spots arround, we get a huge ammount of gravel. Gravel is only used for reactors correct?

    So what is the other advantage to have gravel? It should not state of the art to throw it away.

    I make an anus for my miner and then filter gravel and make miner poop.

    Science!

    I do, I made it so gravel is not fed to it but instead shot out of the system so there is no wasted storage.

    On my latest miner I created a stone to ore extracting area. I think I have like four basic refineries in it. The first sorter white lists stone and pulls from my general cargo area. The second sorter feeds back into the general cargo area and blacklists gravel. It'll work through a large grid large container of stone pretty quickly. When all of the fun is over I end up trapping a lot of gravel. I can then simply eject the gravel out of connectors dedicated to being ejectors. Gravel ejects a lot nicer than the current incarnation of 8kL of stone.
