IMHO the mine is the mine, not buildings. The buildings are buildings (also
as tag: building=xy). They could/should be also comprised in the mine
polygon/ relation.

-> inside of the mining area (which would be underground but in projection
still occupy the same space).

It's not more complicated than any other relation: just add all parts as
members. The easiest case is just the mineshaft beeing mapped: the relation
then has only one member (till other parts get added/mapped).

OK, seems reasonable (and easy to map, what is always important in OSM).
