There aren't really any mines involved. 
We could call it "data centering", but I suspect it wouldn't have the same appeal, even though most data centers are much more comfortable than most mines.
A rose by another name...

Can we take a 51% vote on renaming ElectricMucus?  I'd vote for that.
Its pretty apt.  Mucus is that stuff that by its nature, sticky and thick, serves to trap unwanted particulates and usher them out of the body.  It lubricates and contains antibodies that recognizes invaders like virus and antibodies.  Without mucus, we would not be as hardy.  By its nature it can also be annoying, so that they stuff gets coughed out.  But the bad stuff isn't really the mucus, (though it tends to get the blame) its what the mucus has trapped.

The particulate in question, the nomenclature of new coin discovery, is probably more of a dust particle than a virus, even so if there were something better, it would be a good thing.  The term "Mining" may cause some confusion, and also some curiosity.

Some folks are very good at fixing problems, and not so good at identifying problems, or selecting which are important.  Others have a talent for identifying, and still others for the prioritization.  All are necessary to advance.
