The mining functionality that does background mining in the Bitcoin core was removed in August of 2016. See the following change log:

https://bitcoin.org/en/release/v0.13.0

The mining code itself is still available for testing and experimentation and is located in the files called "miner.cpp" and "miner.h" which are in the main src directory.

    The ability to construct new blocks is still there, in miner.cpp, for testing purposes - there is just no "mine in the background" functionality anymore. – Pieter Wuille Nov 25 '17 at 20:02
