Looks like detailed surface scanners will be needed to properly mine rings. I just started using prospector limpets, now I'll have to swap out the upgraded controller for a surface scanner scanner so my T9 miner can launch probes into rings.

Mining hotspots are being added but they're currently not persistent and will disappear when switching ships. Found some hotspots in your exploration vessel? Sorry, they won't be visible when you return with your mining vessel unless you launch more probes!
