Ring - [Distance, Mass, Density]

32.4  LFT 65  4A [1761.0 Ls, 3.7e+11 MT, 3.8e+10] Uninhabited. A white dwarf system so watch out when entering the system.

83.1  Delkar  - M - 7A [2802.0 Ls, 3.8e+11 MT, 4.5e+10] Only the planetary station stocks Collector Limpet Controllers and no A rated ones at that so you'll have to kit up elsewhere. I have mined this ring several times and alway found it to be a bit dark. However, with the new night vision this should not be a problem.
92.8  Algol  A4A [350.0 Ls, 7.4e+09 MT, 7.4e+08] Pret-ty. An uninhabited system within the bubble.
100.9  HR 8514  - L - 5A [2533.0 Ls, 7.5e+09 MT, 8.2e+08] Beware an Anarchy system controlled by a pirate faction. There is a large Ocellus Starport, Hennen Station and an outpost, Coleman Hub, near to the target ring. Hennen Station has a great stock of mining equipment.
104.3  20 Ophiuchi  - M - 6A [5647.0 Ls, 3.4e+10 MT, 7.5e+09]
106.9  Njikan  - M - 4A [2055.0 Ls, 2.5e+11 MT, 2.5e+10] The only station (a large one at that) is Smeaton Port on planet 3A although it does have a top-notch selection of mining gear and a healthy market.

125.8  G Scorpii  - H - B4A [24058.0 Ls, 0e+00 MT, NaN] A bit of a trek (circa 24000 Ls out) but this is compensated for by a large industrial station, Roberts Ring that orbits the PMR planet. This station has an excellent selection of mining equipment.

137.2  Gurus  - M - CD4A [106230.0 Ls, 3.1e+12 MT, 3.4e+11] A single ring ideal for beginners and a big one at that. A large Hi Tech station Dantec Hub orbits the PMR, it offers good prices for all PMR commodities. The ring and station are 106000 Ls out from the entry star though so it is a bit of a trek.
137.3  20 Arietis  - M - 3A [3175.0 Ls, 3.4e+11 MT, 4e+10]
138.0  HIP 28122  - H - ABC1A [2052.0 Ls, 4e+11 MT, 4.8e+10] There is a planetary colony with services nearby. Pirate faction seems to have a strong powerbase here (circa 10% influence)

139.3  18 Camelopardalis  C1A [91455.0 Ls, 2.6e+11 MT, 2.6e+10] Es espectacular, well worth scanning. This system is in the bubble but uninhabited. It has a neutron star, a terraformable planet that has its own asteroid belt, and finally, a type 4 gas giant that has a pristine metallic ring. My system scan netted 240000 CR. There are many Metal Rich planets and all the moons around the PMR gas giant are metal rich

There is also a couple of mining planetary stations (one of which does sell the 3A refinery)
145.9  Pegasi Sector CL-X c1-17  1A [1269.0 Ls, 1.2e+12 MT, 6.4e+11] A single ring and a whopper at that. With multiple Painite and Serendibite hotspots.

148.0  Maidareldi  - L - 1A [233.0 Ls, 1.4e+12 MT, 1.6e+11] This is a big (single) ring, 133000 km of pristine metallic bling, the biggest in the bubble I think, although the standard system image provided makes it look small. It is also a single ring close that is close to the arrival star, ideal for beginners.

A3A [2482.0 Ls, 6.8e+11 MT, 1.1e+11]
The 2 pristine ringed planets form an orbiting pair. One of the ringed planets has a planetary station nearby called Makeev Bastion, it has limited mining outfitting options (you'll have to bring your own gear with you) and no commodity market but can have beautifiul views of the ringed red gas giant that it orbits. Has a compromised Nav beacon.

In system Jendrassik Settlement has preety good mining equipment except that the biggest refinery it stock is a 2B. This PMR is around 84000 Ls away from this station and the entry star so expect a bit of a trek to get there.
150.6  Ochosag  - M - 1A [2164.0 Ls, 1.7e+11 MT, 1.7e+10]
  • Some of the rings have images associated with them, click on the ring name and the image will open in another tab. If the system is in EDDB then the name will automatically link you through to the system details in EDDB (when available) where you can find details on stations, prices, outfitting options, best places to sell, etc. .
  • The trouble with most trading sites/ data sources is that the data is often out of date within a few days. The best way to find a place to sell is to open the galaxy map and filter the map for Industrial and Hi-Tech systems and then look for those in an economic state of Boom, this can also be filtered in the galaxy map.The best stations to sell in are usually Hi-Tech stations followed by Industrial ones. However on the edge of the bubble trading data is usually non-existant or completely out of date so chances are you are on your own out there. ED updates trade prices frequently, and wars, boom and bust will all have an effect on the prices as well.
  • For a guide to mining check out the 'Mining' section in the links page: Elite dangerous links

I have found many mining systems some not known in any other sources, I am most proud of LFT 65 as it is near the centre of the bubble (the closest to Sol that I know of). I found it whilst doing detailed surface scans on all the White Dwarves within the bubble (they are very common within the bubble). I will make a list and an explanation as to why they are a good source of income some other time. My favourite pristine metallic ring is in the Alkupai system where the ring is around a Tauri T star so it is always lit up

Acknowledgement goes to Gorrister and his the Call of the Wild mining thread on the Frontier Forums. He has spent a lot of time collecting and checking systems. Another great source for this work (the original source on pristine metallic rings, IMHO) is here, no name is given. Much of the work is due to the fastidious efforts of these 2 peeps, I am just the techie putting it together.
