The "walk Through" tells me that there are three Nividium mines in sector "Perpetual Sin".
No, it doesn't -
There is a useful set of three Nividium 'roids in the northern part of sector Perpetual Sin.
There are no mines for nividium and it must be collected with a ship:
find a Nividium 'roid, get a ship with an Ore Collector and Mobile Drilling System and let loose.
First time mobile mining is a pain to be sure. Just shoot the roid with the drill and then shoot one of the large chunks again with it. That should produce some collectible rocks. Been a while since I mined like that but I think the collectable peices have a grey or gold hue. Can't remember what color. I think grey. Then just slowly run over them with your ship that has the ore collector installed. A heavily shielded TS is recommended.
Next on the list of Mahi Ma's priorities is the get the second gate set fixed, but the power conduits are shot. He needs 500 Nividium to repair them. This is the easiest resource to acquire; find a Nividium 'roid, get a ship with an Ore Collector and Mobile Drilling System and let loose. There is a useful set of three Nividium 'roids in the northern part of sector Perpetual Sin. You only need a small amount from one of these. Once you've got 500, drop it off at the Hub.
If you have completed the Goner plot, you can also find nividium roids in the unknown sectors when you activate the unfocused jumpdrive. Although the tend to be more difficult to mine effectively since you have to bring everything with you and can't leave anything behind. A resourceful poster found that the Aran is really good for this.
