  • 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  • The trouble with most trading sites/ data sources is that the data is often out of date within a few days.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 However on the edge of the bubble trading data is usually non-existant or completely out of date so chances are you are on your own out there.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.

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.
