Compressed or not?

Is it better to compress the ore before selling?
If yes, why?
Thank you.

Yes, Compressed Ore has a fraction of the volume of uncompressed. So it makes it a lot easier to haul where ever you need it. there shouldn’t be too much different in the price relative to each other - only exception is Kernite as it is used in a Mission.


Kernite, omber and i think one more, are all used in the Materials of War storyline missions. Just depends on the level.

Does that mean Kernite, Omber and the other would sell for more when compressed or less because it’s used in a mission?

Less i would think.

@Elathy_Maricadie @Geo_Eclipse_Oksaras Thank you for helping.

For missions they usually require the uncompressed version of the Ore.

Raw kernite sells for 1,000 ISK per unit because omegas run a level 4 mission asking them to mine it. “Oh that is so beneath me!” says the omega player. They buy it and get an augment upgrade as the reward. I don’t know about omber, but most raw ore sells better compressed for traveling into the distant null space. They process it and build ships to blow up.

Boosters are a real gas, that is to say gases are sold to make boosters for even more profit. Gas can also be compressed. However looking at the market, I don’t see a need to compress gas, as the price isn’t very different.

Low security gas and kernite will make one richer than most mining activities.

Have fun! o7
