Elite, dangerous mining: Where do I begin?
To begin mining in Elite, you’ll need the following items: Dangerous a refinery and a laser for mining. Once you have these, simply go to an asteroid belt or a RES and look for asteroids to mine.

When you have collected 100% of the mineral, it will change into 1 ton of that mineral. You can then sell it to stations who are interested in purchasing it.
