English term or phrase: working the belts
"These days, with so many mercenary prospectors working the belts, it is customary for corporations to pay a small percentage of the recovered gems to the top performers- those who did the most to ensure a successful mission.

Questo testo è la stringa di un videogioco che si svolge all'interno di miniere in cui si affrontano droni e altri velivoli e raccogliendo minerali e altri oggetti

che lavorano nelle cinture di asteroidi
Explanation:
Il senso secondo me qui è "asteroid belts". Ecco un brano in cui è presente anche il tuo sorgente, che fornisce maggiore contesto:

"Typically recovered during the initial claiming of an asteroid, miners may find these extremely valuable gems inside hidden pockets. Many asteroids contain none, though the majority of large ‘roids contain at least a handful. The largest known pocket, ◈1,421, was recovered in 2307 by the legendary Elihu Kowalski- shortly after he formed the famous “Raspberry Tart Gang” of combat prospectors.

These days, with so many mercenary prospectors working the belts, it is customary for corporations to pay a small percentage of the recovered gems (typically 10% of the total) to the top performers- those who did the most to ensure a successful mission. However, small, privately-held firms may offer substantially higher bounties. Similarly, dangerous non-claim missions might occasionally yield bounties in pallasites to the miners who contributed the most to the operation." - http://descendentstudios.com/community/topic/364-pallasite-c...

A ulteriore conferma, da un articolo che riguarda il gioco su cui stai lavorando: "The story behind the game is that it is set in the year 2315. Megacorporations have sent out mining spaceships to get resources from the Mars-Jupiter asteroid belts." - http://hexus.net/gaming/news/pc/81547-descent-underground-se...

In pratica, si sta parlando di prospezione mineraria nelle cinture di asteroidi...
