I am really new to the game, relatively 1 week as of this posting. I am interested in setting up a reliable source of income without a lot of tedious interactions. Basically I want to set a goal. As for a new player in a corporation that has some good people, what would be required of me in terms of basic skills and cost to create a mining POS? I do know that a reliable location for the POS is needed as well as a decision for ice or moon mining, or some other type if there is one. Thanks for any info you provide.
Moon mining can only be done in systems with sec below 0.4 I believe. If your can find a good system, set up a POS in low sec, defend and fuel it, then it is a very nice income earner. You'll need anchoring skill, POS gunnery would be useful and covert ops for moving around in system undetected. Last time I checked, running a medium POS took about 22M ISk a week (in fuel), but this may have increased due to the cost of some POS fuels rising with the introduction of planetary interaction. Try and find a spreadsheet on the web that calculates fuel for you quickly and easily.
