From the forums. http://www.castlethornsoftware.com/cgi-bin/teemz/teemz.cgi?board=_master&action=opentopic&topic=159&forum=News

"Asteroid Belts
Present in few starsystems, these left-overs from star system formation are a gold mine of resources
Some asteroids contain metal ore, some trycene ore, and some contain quantum black holes
Asteroids containing quantum black holes are a source of antimatter
Raw antimatter currently has no use, but will in a later patch
Sol has an asteroid belt, but as it has been mined for a couple of centuries, the amount of resources available there are minimal

Hint: Asteroid belts in close orbit around their star are most likely to contain trycene asteroids

Asteroid mining:
A starship can use it's tractor beam to mine asteroids for resources The raw ore is loaded as cargo

Raw resource processing:
Civilian Buran space stations and other orbital transfer stations can process raw ore into usable resources

There is a charge against the ship's credit account for ore processing
The processing station or colony deposits this fee in their bank account
The processed resources are placed in the ship's stores"
