Yes, this is what it sounds like. The basic idea of a "salvage turret" is a docked entity that fires salvage beams at the nearest sources of minerals. A new option could be added into the Bobby AI as well. When you select the turret option a couple boxes show up to select either a normal turret or a salvage turret and maybe even and option for the turret to aim for only resources, only terrain blocks, or both. This would increase quality and ease of mining as well as allow multitasking while performing this usually dreadful task for most players. Salvage turrets could also increase design choices as with the current system the only way to mine efficiently is to make a thick wall of salvage beams, and that can be really difficult to make look at least decent.
