Venus is the only operative with mining skill and unfortunately no training is available. Still, you should be able to complete this mission in less than 4 days if you start right away. Place an iron extractor near the iron deposits to the southeast of the base, buy a space bike, and put Venus to work immediately. Also, place several additional warehouses right away to move the ore as fast as she can dig it.
Have Daisy harvest hydromorphus close to the base, since nutrients aren't buyable. Nikolai can work the power desk, and Tami and Babette can alternate on the oxygen desk. Tami will, of course, clean when needed.
Consolidate the base by selling the two upper airlocks and the upper small dome. Replace that with a medium dome covering the existing corridors, and replace the airlock near the shuttle pad.
Don't build to the east because spineweed soon closes in from that direction. Cluster bombs are not available to fight it yet. Concentrate on meeting the goal before the spineweed reaches the base.
Around day 2, you'll start to see activity from the Fribulan basemarsh fairies at first, then the occasional harvester and Fribulan soldier. You have no lasers and Venus is the only colonist with repair skill. She needs to concentrate on mining, so it's probably best to just let the iron rig take damage, sell it just before it is destroyed and buy another one. Focus on the goal and you'll finish well ahead of the Frib.
Spend any credits just before the last unit of iron is collected. Then when the next mission starts, sell items you don't need to get more credits than would normally be carried over.
