I happen to be looking for miners to come to my system and mine locally. I run a small production corporation and my largest obstacle is freighting minerals from Dodixie back to my system. So, I came up with an idea that I’d like to post here, since I’ve already attempted to solicit interested parties unsuccessfully in-game. My idea is to get a small group of miners to come to my system and make it their own. It’s a high sec system, so it’s quite safe, and it’s pretty low traffic. I will be posting buy orders for all common ores weekly or monthly at fair market value at the local major hub, which is dodixie. The asteroid fields do not deplete, as there are relatively few miners, and there are also frequently ore spawns of some slightly rarer ore types in the system.
As an incentive, I will award productive miners with free replacement tech 1 ships (Venture or barge) fully fitted for mining should they lose one to NPC hostiles, and also a tiered reward program based upon the quantity of ore sold to the corporation per player. Level 1, free Gallente frigate of your choice, Level 2, destroyer, Level 3 Cruiser, etc, all the way up to battleships. I would also be willing to give as much as a 10% discount on Tech II Gallente ships and tech 1 freighters to those who are top producers.
I will always offer all miners who supply me at any level, with up to 5% discount on any ships or equipment they need based on the fair market value of any piece of equipment or ship.
So, if you or any other miners are interested in mining under such an arrangement in Gallente space, and primarily fly Gallente ships, this may be an opportunity.
If there is something you are not comfortable with or a way I can make this offer more attractive while retaining a good business practice for both parties I would be interested in your feedback. As I am not a large corporation, I cannot sponsor a large number of miners, but perhaps a dozen might be the right number, depending on quantity of product harvested.
You can find me in game and message me if interested, as I may not check this posting daily. Menzo Stoli.
As a post script, I am also interested in players looking to get into exploration and would like someone to show them the ropes, so if you’re a miner and explorer, even better.
