First of all, about me: I have a Hulk, Exhumers V, I can use most types of T2 crystals, I don't have implants and no one in my gang to boost my yield.

Usually when I wanted to mine, I went somewhere in 0.0 and mined Crokite. It was nice and comfy, but that was before zydrine prices started plummeting. I'm now back at a point where I need to make ISK, and I honestly don't feel like doing missions. Mining is the only reasonable option for me.

So basically I'm wondering if going back to 0.0 and continue mining Crokite is worth it (keeping in mind all the dangers that 0.0 implies), or if I should just stick to a fairly quiet 0.5 system and just mine away with only the worry of kamikazes blowing up my Hulk or thieves ****ing around with my can. Low sec is not being considered (unless you want to argue otherwise -- I'm open-minded).

I'm not looking for the absolute hugest money maker here, just a good balance between risk and reward.
What's your opinion?

Gonna be updating this thread with new figures for June soon, computer problems have so far kept me from doing it.

Simply calculate it:
Guessed Mineral Prices you can sell at trade-hubs:
Tritanium 2,30
Pyerite 9,00
Mexallon 27,00
Isogen 95,00
Nocxium 150,00
Zydrine 1.500,00
Megacyte 4.850,00

Which gives you the following ore prices with perfect refining:
[Ore] [per m]
Arkonor 752,73
Bistot 417,97
ArrowCrokite 261,22
Spodumain 226,46
Dark Ochre 170,8
Gneiss 147,04
ArrowKernite 121,72
ArrowScordite 113,26
ArrowPlagioclase 103,88
ArrowOmber 103,25

Hedbergite 80,24
Pyroxeres 73,66
Veldspar 69
Hemorphite 56,15
Jaspet 55,76

Crokite is still worth more than double than Scordite and Kernite per m, but you have of course more trouble mining it and getting it to the market. It is up to you to decide if it is worth the risk involved mining Crokite.

(Funny thing that Veldspar is currently worth more than Hemorphite and Jaspet! Shocked)

the price of the low sec ores might be miscalculated, since i used an rather old spread (2 or 3 years) sheet where the traces of zyndrine are missing. So i got to recalculate it later with the accurate data ....

So here the recalculate list with Ore Mineral Value according to the Item database:

[ORE] [ISK/m]
Arkonor 582,73
Bistot 417,97
ArrowCrokite 261,22
Spodumain 170,46
Gneiss 147,04
Dark Ochre 140,8
ArrowKernite 121,72
ArrowScordite 113,26

Hedbergite 112,24
ArrowPlagioclase 103,88
ArrowOmber 103,25

Hemorphite 84,15
Pyroxeres 73,66
Veldspar 69
Jaspet 67,76

Hedbergite and Hemorphite looking better, but currently not worth the trouble, IMO.
Jaspet still looses.
Still up to you, to decide, if crokite is worth the trouble.

Cramps -

I'm your high sec mirror image. Did time down in 0.0 but got tired of all the crap with hostiles and trying to convince management that we needed a viable industrial infrastructure. So, I moved to 0.5 space because I have plans, a budget to meet and can't be bothered with all the dashing around and fighting (at least, until my long term goals are achieved!)

You'll find 0.5 to be very pleasant, just make sure you find a system that's a good way away from a trade hub/source of newbies and is not directly on a main route, either.

Feel free to convo or email me in-game if you have any other questions.

Genesis is a good region for mining at the moment, I think. Heorah in particular used to be my main base of operations (me personally, not corp); it has good ore (all the minerals up to nocx can be obtained) and Genesis as a whole is pretty deserted since Yulai was nerfed in favour of Jita.

I haven't been there for a while though, so YMMV.

Thank you all for your answers. To 0.5 I go then!
