How do you use the prospector in Star Citizen?

You need a Prospector ship to mine and the process consists in 3 steps. 1) First you use scan mode to scan for suitable rocks on planet surfaces or asteroids belts. 2) Once you’ve located the rocks you change your mode to fracture and use the laser to ‘charge’.
