If you don’t find any mole miners in one of these locations, it could be that other players already killed them. So if that’s the case, the best thing to do would be to find another server or checking another location on the list.
Once you kill around ten mole miners or the amount challenge says, you should complete it. But challenges are not the only thing you should consider with mole miners, as they are also a good source for various scrapable materials such as steel and gears.
