Mr. Slate was an officer for a mining company which operated under the Confederate Mining Consortium. Along with three other companies, Slate and co. were given the rights to harvest minerals from the technologically active world of Old Faithful. Determined to ensure that his company would be the only one left to mine the minerals, he instructed a terran commander to ensure that this would be the case. At least one other company was engaged.[1]
