Digging/mining games?

I'm looking for a game similar to the online game motherload where you're on a planet and you are mining into the ground for increasingly rare materials. The only games I know of that are similar are the "I dig it" games which I've already played.

Any suggestions? They don't have to be exactly like this just somewhat similar, thanks.

Mines of Mars
Deep Loot (turn-based, and a bit similar to roguelikes)

There are two by same dev that I really like and sound exactly like what your looking for ...
Craft digger Moon & Digger Treasure on Mars ...
They are similar in game play Craft Digger Moon was the first with Digger Treasure being the sequel
There's just something enjoyable about mining for riches ...lol...I remember these games don't offer much of a tutorial so you kinda just have to figure it out...
This Ended up being one of those games I'm glad I stuck with because after upgrading my speed/weapons it became pretty addicting. The movement is pretty slow until you upgrade your speed a bit ....
These were totally free and I can't recall any IAP either...so if you try and don't like your wallet isn't any lighter

I liked Deep Loot quite a bit. Mines of Mars has more "depth". Both solid
