And in the OTU, a great many asteroid belts are shattered worlds.

But prospecting would be a matter of going around with a mass-spectrometer scope (of the kind in use today by the USGS) looking for surface indications of Tantalum ore, or surface indications of something that might indicate the presence of Tantalum ore. Oh yes, and probably a densitometer, too.

Also, in a shattered world remnant asteroid belt, left over core fragments might have a radically different makeup than crustal fragments.
