The gem resource is both very rare and very valuable. to build a mine you'll need one gem; to build a hyperspace drive you'll need many gems; and to couple matters, each time a ship enters hyperspace it uses a gem (fusitron) as fuel. The guild will be attempting to monopolize gems throughout the universe, using its starting advantage to further this effect.

The radioactive resource in similar to the fuel resource, only a power plant will be needed to use its energy.

Mines will need be built directly over resources to access them

Do you have to do some sort of surveying of the terrain to find these gem resources to mine or do you already know about there locations when you get on to the surface of the planet?

Yes, a specialist unit (the imperial geologist) will need time to ascertain a planets wealth, and then specifying the exact location of the minerals. This should be quite easy to implement programming wise, but note that the idea is to "rediscover" not to "explore". e.g. some ruins will hold info on the location of very valuable resources (and some will give false information on such), and the location of some minerals will be obvious (abandoned mines).
