32.4 LFT 65 4A Uninhabited. A white dwarf system so watch out when entering the system.
51.0 LHS 2661 6A Uninhabited. A white dwarf system so watch out when entering the system.
83.1 Delkar 7A - M - 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.
92.8 Algol A4A Pret-ty. An uninhabited system within the bubble.
100.9 HR 8514 5A - L - 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.

176.0 HIP 102130 2A, 2B An uninhabited system within the bubble. Great for peaceful mining. A double ring of bling! The only double ring I have ever seen. A good one for beginners worrying about where to mine as both rings are viable.

177.5 HIP 109330 1A - M - Only station here, an outpost around planet 2. It has RRR facilities but no outfitting. The PMR is 835 Ls from the entry star.
177.5 HR 8970 9A - L - Both stations in this system are planetary but the outfitting options of neither are listed in EDDB. One station, 'Vries Holdings', is a refinery, the other, 'Shaara Arsenal' is a military station. Both of these stations have all facilities, including a commodities market and outfitting. Only the second time I have seen this, but the planet with the PMR is a Water World.

177.6 HIP 105192 A3A - L - A Hi-Tech system that has only planetary stations (Horizons). Tjakiri, another Hi-Tech system with non-planetary stations is nearby. The second star, around 9000 Ls out has 3 terraformable candidates and 2 water worlds so this system is defintely worth a detailed surface scan.
177.6 9 Comae Berenices 9A - L - An excellent system to scan with several earth like or water world type planets. Near the top of the bubble. There is a planetary base (a pirate base) on one of the moon of the ring of interest.
177.7 Col 285 Sector HD-I c10-15 8A - L - An inhabited system on the edge of the bubble. The galactic map shows it as having a terraforming economy but there are no terraformable planets. The only station 'Thuot Port' is an industrial planetary station and has no outfitting factilities but does have restock and repair facilities (and commodities).

  • 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. We now have over 170 pristine metallic rings and the list is still growing!
