What is Mining Github?

GitHub is a web-based Git or version control repository and Internet hosting service. It is mostly used for code. It offers all of the distributed version control and source code management (SCM) functionality of Git as well as adding its own features. It provides access control and several collaboration features such as bug tracking, feature requests, task management, and wikis for every project

From Wiki.

Mining Github relates to the act of scouring Github using the public search engine for sensitive or useful information in code, commit messages etc based on certain search patterns (which can include file types, target file structures like wp-config.php and languages used).

It’s a good practice for an organisation to search its own Github repositories if any of them are public to ensure they aren’t leaking anything sensitive.

There are also other tools that search, scan or mine Github for sensitive information such as:

Github Dorks – Github Security Scanning Tool
Gitrob – Scan Github For Sensitive Files
