The Mining Co. is a legit deal. You host a topic, and, based on the
amount of traffic which goes through your hosted pages, you get paid. I
know a few people who have done this. Most of them hosted niche subject
matters like "modern jazz" or "wine tasting" so they didn't see much
traffic, but it was some money, and if you have the spare time, sure.
It's a matter of whether you can keep the information interesting enough
to keep people coming back and checking out lots of things.
If I had more time, I would have approached them myself :)
