A mining colony was established on Quillan in 699 A.S., when easily accessible deposits of Copper and other metal Ore's were found on the Planet's surface. For a long time, the Gallic Metal Service was administering the colony with the help of Gallic Royal Police and smaller shipping companies from Gallia. Despite rising pirate acitivity in Languedoc, the Quillan mining operations proved to be profitable, and resource extraction on the planet was rising until the beginning of the Second Gallic War.
In the end of 815 A.S., a large Council fleet has breached through Quillan's orbital defenses. The Council] armed forces landed on the planet in attempt to gain control of the mining operations. Gallic Army regiments stationed on Planet's surface resisted the invaders, but after many months of fierce fighting the Council troops gained the upper hand. The victory was ensured by both numerical superiority of the Council and by the support of local miners who were inspired by the success of Marne Rebellion.
Council occupation of Quillan was shortlived however, as the Gallic Royal Navy had long since prepared for a massive invasion of the other Sirian houses. Operatives within the Royal Navy had warned about the attack and the futility of attempting to make a stand against it, which allowed the Council to evacuate most of the population out into Sirius. When the Gallic Royal Navy seized control of Quillan again, they were met with only token resistance. The Gallic Metal Service is slowly repairing and restarting the mining operations on the Planet, bringing in workers from the Gallic Core Worlds as needed. The planet currently houses some 75.000 people, a number that is expected to double over the coming years.
