Ore

From EVEWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

For other uses, see Ore (disambiguation).

Ore is the basic material found in the various asteroid fields throughout EVE. In native form asteroid ores cannot be used, but must be refined into their constituent Minerals, which can then be used for ship and equipment manufacture.

As a rule of thumb, the refinable value of an ore increases the farther away it's found from High Sec, but at the same time, the volume of a single unit of ore also increases. Since mining lasers work in m3 instead of ore units, and the volume of the higher end ores is up to 400 times that of the lowends, it's a good idea to check prices per m3 and not per mineral; low end ore may still be more profitable than high-end ores due to mere amounts.

The Ore can be found in asteroids of the same name and most asteroid ores can only be reprocessed in set minimum quantites.

Ore is harvested from Asteroids in an Asteroid belt by using Mining Lasers. This differs from Ice, which is harvested from Ice fields by using Ice Harvesters.

Asteroid Ores

Ore found in any higher security area is also found in lower security areas of that region/faction. Ore found in 0.0 space varies wildly from system to system. However, certain ores only appear in 0.0 systems.
