Eve Online mining skills

Let’s start from the most important thing in Eve – skills. The following skills focused directly at mining the resources are provided in the game:

Mining is a basic skill at using mining lasers. It gives a +5% bonus to ore mining yield per each skill level.

Mining Upgrades is a skill at using mining upgrades. These are the modules that are inserted in lower slots of the ship and increase ore mining yield by several per cent.

Astrogeology gives a +5% bonus to ore mining yield per skill level, same as Mining skill.

Deep Core Mining is a skill at using deep core mining lasers intended for mining the Mercoxit (the most valuable and rare ore in Eve Online).

Ice Harvesting is a skill at using Ice Harvesters, which defines ice harvester cycle time (initially, ice mining lasts for 5 minutes, the cycle time being able to be decreased with the skill upgrade).

Gas Cloud Harvesting is a skill at using gas harvesting modules. You can run across a gas cloud only in null security space and wormholes.

Mining Drone Operations is a skill at using mining drones. They can significantly increase ore mining yield; however, you will need to persistently upgrade for a long time and use only one type of ships (Rorqual).

Mining Drone Specialization is a skill improving parameters of certain, specifically efficient mining drones.

Mining Frigate is a skill at using mining frigate (Venture), which can drastically improve its parameters.

Mining Barge is a skill at using mining barges (Procurer, Retriever, and Covetor). Their parameters depend directly on level of this skill.

Exhumers is a skill at using T2 mining barges (Skiff, Mackinaw, and Hulk). Similar to the above, Exhumer parameters are directly dependent on this skill.

ORE Industrial is a skill at using Rorqual ship. (Here you can find a example of good Rorqual character)

Industrial Command Ship is a skill at using Orca ship. Bonuses this ship can give depend on level of this skill.

Capital Industrial Ship is a skill at using Rorqual ship. Bonuses this ship can give depend on level of this skill.

Mining Foreman is a skill that is enabled only when in a fleet. It increases efficiency of bonuses from Orca and Rorqual ships.

Refining is a skill that reduces refining losses by 2% per each level.

Refinery Efficiency is a skill that reduces refining losses by 4% per each level.
