A miner's life on Cyrene. (Log #001)

Blog entry posted by Mini-Nova, Jul 13, 2012.

Hello and welcome to my 1st Cyrene mining blog!

Some things I will go over in my blogs: #1. My experiences on Cyrene (coming from an experienced miner) #2 Things that could be improved here to attract miners and the like, and maybe even attract other types, but for now, I will mainly focus on stories, like hunting and mining with the Cyrene locals, and just random events that come up, hope you enjoy the read!:)

Mining Run: #001
Mining Tool(s) Used: F-213
Run Cost: 100 PED
Hit Ratio: 67.355%

Well, this has to be my 10th time (at least) mining here on Cyrene and I have to say, the first thing that I noticed is, there is no variety in ore/energy matter, I've hit Zorn Star ore, Iridium, crude oil and green/yellow Crystal so far and THAT'S IT!!! I am mining at 800 meters depth and higher, I have even tried mining with lower depth finders, but have no success in finding other resources, but I will be sure to keep you guys up to date if I do find anything else. (must be deeper? Maybe in other areas?!)

Anyways........ Today I went out with 100 PED worth of survey probes and my F-213, first I went to every TP on Cyrene and dropped a probe just outside the TP, biggest hit: Average VII crude oil, I did this to "test" Cyrene and see what kind of things I could find but honestly (like I mentioned earlier) there hasn't been much variety wich makes for boring mining (think of hunting and only finding 1 type of material from the mob all the time, gets kind of tedious/boring kind of quick) luckily I love low markup things like crude oil/Lysterium stone, then again not everyone likes to cycle loot like me!

After mining every TP on Cyrene and not finding much, a friend I met here earlier at A.R.C. HQ invited me to go on a hunt trip with him and his trainee, we went and hunted Merfolken on the beach, they didn't loot that well, but it wasn't bad either, the day before I hit a 70 PED global from one of the Merfolken Elite's, so I wasn't that worried that the drops weren't fantastic, anyways, after hunting a bit, I dropped a couple probes by the Merfolken Elite's right on the beach and hit a Large XII Zorn Star ore claim, and then an XI crude oil followed by an XI Zorn star ore. The area was turning out quite lucrative! So I kept on probing around and hit another XI! In the end my return was 200%, I was +100 PED's!

Stay tuned! Many exciting Cyrene adventures ahead!! ;)
