Eve Online mining modules

Eve Online mining modules

Miner I and Miner II

These are initial lasers, their other modifications are rare and too expensive. Ore mining using these lasers is almost unprofitable and may have only training or introductory purposes.

Eve Online strip lasers

These are specialized lasers that can be installed only on mining barge and exhumers. They feature higher performance parameters for ore mining and are divided into three types: for ore, for ice, and for Mercoxit.

Eve Online Modulated Strip Miner II

Modulated Strip Miner II is low on performance as compared to Modulated Strip Miner I, meaning that, if installed on T2 ship instead of T1 ship, its ore mining yield is lower due to the fact that Modulated Strip Miner II is used together with mining crystals that are provided for each type of ore, divided into T1 and T2 variants, and increase ore mining yield approx. by 30%.

Eve Online Mining Upgrades

These are modules that are located in lower slots of the ship and increase total ore mining yield by 6 to 9% each. To install them, you need a lot of CPU.

Eve Online Survey scanner

This scanner is used mostly for ore mining in the systems with security status of 0.9 and 1.0. It ensures estimation of amount of the minerals left in ore. When used in the systems with security status of 0.8 and less, the module dramatically loses its efficiency, which is attributed to NPC pirates that appear there. In this case, we recommend to replace the module with additional defense against damage.

Eve Online mining rigs

These are Medium Ice Harvester Accelerator I that decreases cycle time of ice harvesters by 12% and Medium Mercoxit Mining Crystal Optimization I that increases Mercoxit mining yield by 16%. These rigs have no T2 versions.

Eve Online mining implants

Michi's Excavation Augmentor that increases mining yield by 5%.

Inherent Implants 'Highwall' Mining that adds 1 - 3 - 5% to mining yield and Inherent Implants 'Yeti' Ice Harvesting that decreases cycle time of ice lasers by 1 - 3 - 5%.

Eifyr and Co. 'Alchemist' Gas Harvesting that decreases cycle time of gas harvesters by 1 - 3 - 5%.
