Can't place a mk3 miner on foundations over a pure coal node, but a mk1 and mk2 can be placed. (All 3 can be placed without foundations).

As someone who has had some weird behaviors with miners on foundations as well, curious if you tried the following:
1. Place down foundation grid over node.
2. Remove the 1 block directly over the node.
3. Attempt to place mk 3 miner over node so it is raised to the foundation height.
4. Replace section of the foundation under the miner.

That trick has save me numerous times when my miners wanted to only build on diagonals to the foundation or randomly decided one node was good and another just 1 tile  away was not.

Yes, I tried the removing the foundation trick, it didn't work, it kept saying "encroaching other's clearance" until all foundations were removed, only then did it allow the miner to be placed directly on the node.
