Ore is used in massive amounts by both the planetary and orbital habitats where it is turned in to refined metals for use in construction and manufacturing.

While it is possible to turn a profit by transporting other people’s ore perhaps the best way to make money is as an asteroid miner.

Mining the local asteroid belt for usable minerals and returning them to the local station for refining offers the promise of a far higher profit margin than a simple haulage contract would.

Ore is by definition a mineral or an aggregate of minerals from which a valuable constituent, especially metal, can be profitably mined or extracted. The costs to mine on planets and get the product up into space is very high, plus you have the environmental consequences during and after the mining. So instead we have moved into Space to do our mining. Fortunately there are quite a few asteroids to be found in various systems.

The mineral mined from asteroids can be sold... thus you have mined ore.

But even better, you can refine the ore using a Orbital Refinery, resulting in Refined Ore. This can also be sold for a higher markup. The refining skill determines your ratio.
