I know mining in Empire isn't very good and have never really planned on having a miner at all. However, I have started 2 alts for Research and Production recently. My main mostly is just a missioner, but I do a little exploration here and there and occasionally come across Grav sites.

I have only done a little mining when I first start, so I don't really know much about the real profit at all. Currently, my main is still in a Int/Mem remap and I was wondering.. Is it worth training for a Hulk just to be able to do these Grav sites (the better ones I find anyway)? How much could a decent Grav site bring in isk wise?

I'm a full-time explorer. I also have two alts that let me put together a small mining fleet when I find a good grav site.

Generally, I wouldn't mine anything but grav sites that have jaspet or higher in them. I ran a large jaspet/kernite site about a week ago and got maybe 100 million out of it in six hours. Not exactly stellar (I make up to twice that in an hour in a good wormhole), but I was able to mine it while I watched a movie and did some work. Hedbergite/hemorphite/jaspet sites are reasonably profitable. I think I do about 35-40 million an hour mining those with my mining team.

You're best off working with dedicated miners, either in your own corp or some friends. Most of the sites I discover I just sell to a mining corp I know. They have three roaming mining fleets and pay a few independent explorers based on what kind/size site we find. Easy money :)

(and no i won't put you in contact with them, that would cut into my profits)

Thanks Floppie. Probably wouldnt be a bad idea to train for a Hulk anyway I guess. Those numbers are half way decent and would atleast give me something to do while I do school work or something.
