In 2373, Benjamin Sisko led a team from Deep Space 9 to investigate the possibility of establishing a mining operation to extract the cormaline. Jadzia Dax found that the cormaline was only a few hundred meters under the surface and veins were among the richest she had seen. Worf commented that Torga IV's proximity to Dominion space could disrupt supply lines but did not make a mining operation impossible.
The crew's mission was interrupted when a Jem'Hadar starship crashed near their position. When Sisko's team investigated the wreckage, they were forced to take refuge inside the ship when the Vorta Kilana arrived to retrieve it and ordered her Jem'Hadar soldiers to lay siege to the ship. The Starfleet crew could not discover why Kilana wanted the ship, although Sisko and Dax would later discover a Changeling aboard that died soon after. Having failed to save the Founder, Kilana's Jem'Hadar crew killed themselves. The USS Defiant arrived soon after and towed the Jem'Hadar starship off the planet. (DS9 episode: "The Ship")
A mining operation would soon be established on Torga IV to mine the cormaline, with the species arriving on the planet to live and work there including Bajorans, Ferengi, Klingons and Romulans. (TNG novel: The Genesis Wave, Book 3)
