Terrible at fractional math, need help getting it, moon mining ore amounts

(Piugattuk) #1

So I’m out today scouting moons out of curiosity and when you survey the moons this is the reading;

Bitumens 0.10461349785

Cubic Bistot 0.312656491995

Glossy Scordite 0.323806643486

Sparkling Plagioclase 0.258923411369

So my rudimentary understanding is this, take 100% then divide by the readings, in simpler terms it works out to
With the numbers after adding it all up to 100%.

So from this how do we know the profitability of a moon chunk, how do we determine a potential value, then convert it into ISK terms based on current prices.

Moons extract at a rate of ~20k m3 per hour. Can use that as a baseline.

the current order of most valuable minerals (refined value) obtainable from HS moons, assuming thats where your station is, is the following:
Sylvite > Coesite Gneiss > Arkonor > Spodumain > bistot > crokite > Jaspet > Plagioclase > Pyroxeres > Hermophite > Veldspar > kernite > hedbergite > Ochre > Scordite > omber.

Moongoo minerals are currently on the downfall though (coesite fallen 50k/1000m3 since the release of HS moon mining) as a result of the sudden influx.

if you search in some rural systems you might end up finding some moons with at least 3 of the most profitable ores.

10 days cycle is going to bring in aprox. 4.7 mil m3 of ore. so around 20000m3/hr

Made this earlier, should be pretty useful.

This was outstanding, loved it, easy to understand, thanks a bunch.
