If you set a MSW TF to patrol a hex with mines in it, it will actually sweep mines? I have but I'm getting no indication that it is doing so.

There is two (I think) minesweeping phases during the naval movement portion of the turn. If you are pressing esc to speed up turn resolution, you are likely missing the messages. In essence, your answer is yes. Create MS TF and order to a hex.

P.S. Do NOT put the MS TF on reaction orders as I find this leads to greater chances of hitting mines

No it will not. To sweep mines the MSW TF requires a destination hex set, patrol zones overwrite this setting and they will not sweep mines in the PZ.

To sweep mines away from hoomebase set a destination and remain on station.
