So I'm in need of finding a regular supplier of minerals and don't seem to be having much luck. I've posted in the wanted forum and haven't gotten a nibble. I suspect the issue is the amounts I currently need (about 600mil worth) aren't worth anyone's time. I could put buy orders on the market, but that means my mineral amounts are likely to fluctuate from month to month and doesn't provide me with any cost certainty.

I'd like some advice from other smaller corps how they obtain their mineral needs. Thanks in advance.

Well, I like to mine, which helps.

However to get the volume I need I look around and buy it in the sell part of the market and charon it back to the pos. I don't know about Jita, but the lower rocks usually sell cheaper than the buy orders offer, so I actually save that way. I also eavesdrop on alliance chat and when I hear a mining op going on I offer to buy it all and pick it up from wherever they are mining.

Anyway, that's how I do it.

Buy orders. Get creative, find systems with miners who are too lazy to haul their loot. Use ore buy orders. Melt down the crap you don't need from your missions. Melt down the crap you don't need from other peoples' missions.

Buy orders and Margin Trading 4 or 5 is what you need, so you can place orders for the stuff you need but not have to put all the ISK into escrow.

I typically place an order for twice as much as I need.
