Morphite
Megacite
Zydrine
Nocxium
Isogen
Mexallon
Pyrite
Tritanium

i don't think i've missed any out, but i might have done.

A useful tip when choosing what to mine is to remember your alphabet. The closer to A it is, the more valuable it is. For example. Arkanor = most valuable, Veldspar = least valuable.

For us newbies, how do we go about finding better spots to mine?
ie.. better quality mineral while still a relatively safe area.

just a little exploring, go to a new system and warp to a station "dont dock" open your radar "little green button by your shields, speed, ect" and click the range tab. in the range setting box enter 99999999999999999 this will make the scanner default to its max range "about 14AU" and you can get a pretty good idea whats in that system with little/no risk. if you see that the system has the types of ore you want to mine warp to a belt or two and make sure that the roids are of decent size. with your current bantam that will not really be much of a issue, but if you are going to spend a lot of time mining get into a thorax cruiser with 5 minerII's. the thorax can hold 8 heavy drones to help keep you safe.

Thanks for the pointer. Fow now I am doing the solo thing until I learn more of the basics then planning to join some friends who have joined Eve coming from Dark Age of Camelot... which translates to.. for the next few days I am looking to make money so the bigger/better ships are probably out of the question.

The group of friends may end up giving me money to get a better ship so for now I just want money to buy skills while I continue to learn the basics..

best minerals are in deep space.

This means facing pc and battleship class npc pirates.
Most of 0.0 is claimed by player alliances so get a mining permit first or you will get yourself killed.

Typical 0.0 sec mining operation requires 3-4 bs as guards as many miners you can get and a few indy s to transport everything good ratio 1 indy for each 2-4 bs miners.

Off course you can always try to ninja mine but that has it s own set of risks.
