INCOME: HowTo - Mining - Did You Know Part 1 - #00057

If you're into REGULAR (not deep-core) you might want to check this list of "did you know" items you might have missed. Knew all? Be proud of yourself. Know more? Tell me!


With your prospector limpet having arrived at your current rock-of-desire, you can see its contents. Needless info, but a needed introduction, sorry.

To check what you can expect from that rock, you do a little bit of math. It goes like this:

--> Check percentage of the material you go for

If going for painite, you may see a value of 50.00% painite in an asteroid.
No other material.

This would provide about 15 tons of painite after having chipped off fragments until depletion.

Why? Because Asteroids contain a maximum rate of about 26 tons of ore at a theoretical 100% occurence (Numbers are reported differently, here. My long time observation is about 26. Some cmdrs report 25, some report 35... for whatever reason. As I am selfish and stubborn, I use 26 as a fix point here).

50% would be 13 tons, 20% would be roughly 5 tons. Your mileage may vary a bit on these values, but regularly it's about that.

I am sorry, something went wrong.
