So all weekend I've been looking, trying different things to see if there is still a nice way to get a easily automated mining setup going. Sadly I just can't find the solution on this one, maybe because Buildcraft isn't there or that the Ender Quarry(or Quantum Quarry) is just way to expensive now requiring a nether star and all that schmuck. I just have a hard time wrapping my head around it all, currently i have a RFTools Builder with a Quarry card in it. Sadly this won't run efficient due to lack of power or RF generation. So my question basically comes down to one and only one thing, what the hell is a good early to mid game automated mining system that doesn't completely destroy my RF gen.
