do "mining" do you mean mining subsidy or the validation process?
mining is an antiquated bitcoin term ;)

from investment point of view I've read somewhere that eth "mining" will stop this year... that made me wonder if mining rigs will become absolete

no one knows when that will happen nor what the final impact to block subsidies will be
that is to say, you can read lots of info on the blog, reddit, and stackexchange site... but it's all just best guesses right now
