Drones drop drone bits. With the proper reprocessing skills you can refine them into minerals.

As an industrialist, I'd take a drone complex over any other complex any day of the week.

Minerals you mine are not free. The value of the drone compounds dropped in these plexes is minimal next to what drops in real faction plexes. Point being, you could run those plexes, sell the loot, and buy even more minerals.

An understanding of exploration most likely.

Drones have no bounty.
Overseer drones in exploration sites have a chance of dropping Overseer's Personal Effects which NPCs will buy from you
I've heard of people getting Serpentis faction modules from the Rogue Drone 3/10 but haven't gotten any myself.

Personally I avoid all of them like the plague. "Normal" rat plexes are quicker and easier to run, and (in my personal experience, your mileage may vary) drop better loot, more often.

Also, why would you use drone exploration sites for minerals? The beauty of exploration sites is not the opportunity to get bounties or regular salvage or drone goo, it's to get rare and valuable drops. You'd probably get more minerals mining them yourself or running L4s AFK in a Dominix/Rattlesnake and just buying the minerals off the market.

I once got a C type EANM and 2 C Type energized hards with some ammo etc from a 3/10 serp phi-outpost in high sec so good stuff can drop if the lucks with you as well as overseers effects.
