Falldir Devi fixed the impossible (without implants) procurer fit with a little pricier (t2 powergrid rig). fixed the fits to actually be in proper format

-All moons in systems owned by Brave belong to Brave Collective. The moons with the highest value ore are in most cases open to the public and handled by Brave leadership directly.

 All the other moons are open for renting by private individuals for a fixed sum each month and is then only open for these individuals and whoever they approve to mine there. All the other moons are open for renting by private individuals for a fixed sum each month and is then only open for these individuals and whoever they approve to mine there.

-The “Rarity 64” materials (Monazite, Loparite, Ytterbite, Xenotime) and some of the R32 materials (Zircon, Pollucite, Carnotite) generally have a value at least ten times the worth of the best normal ore, so it is highly sought after. If you want a piece of these rocks, you should make sure to show up at the exact time the moon pops. They will normally only last 1-2 hours.+The “Rarity 64” materials (Monazite, Loparite, Ytterbite, Xenotime) and some of the R32 materials (Zircon, Pollucite, Carnotite) generally have a value of 5-10 times the worth of the best normal ore, so it is highly sought after. If you want a piece of these rocks, you should make sure to show up at the exact time the moon pops. They will normally only last 1-2 hours. Sometimes you can get lucky though and it will last longer, so it can be worth moving over to have a look too.

-To Be Updated+Below are a few different fits for the most common mining ships 
 + 
 +==Mining Frigates== 
 + 
 +The first mining frigate the Venture can be used by any alpha that starts the game. Better skills help, but if you are serious about mining, you want to get up to a mining barge as soon as possible. They do not take long to get and the yield difference is big.  
 +If you are new to Brave, you can ask Dojo for a free starter Venture, so do not go and buy it, get the free one, use it until you can upgrade to a barge and if you are generous, donate it back to the Dojo to give to another newbro.

 +==Mining Barges== 
 + 
 +Mining barges are the bread and butter of serious miners as they take only about a week to get to fly and cost almost nothing so can easily be replaced if they die. Everyone from newbros new to mining to serious multiboxers use them. 
 +Most of these fits below cost around 30-40m and as you get better skills, you can upgrade the Strip miners to Strip Miner IIs and use mining crystals for higher yield. You can also upgrade the mining drones and the combat drones to Tech 2 
 + 
 +**Procurer**  
 + 
 +This ship has high tank/ehp, low yield and average cargohold (12.000m3). 
 + 
 +It is perfect when you are mining alone or in an area where a lot of neutrals hang around (close to GE-8JV for instance). This fit can be optimized to get a higher yield then the below fit, but if you are in a situation to choose higher yield over tank, you probably want to use a Covetor anyway.

 +**Retriever** 
 + 
 +This ship has the same layout as the Covetor but has average yield and tank and a large cargohold (22.000m3). In low activity areas, it is the perfect ship for lazy people who do not want to jump off to empty the cargohold so much. Its main weakness is complacency. You keep watching other things instead of the ship, so won’t see the neutrals until they are right on top of you, having you tackled and half your shield is gone.  
 +Because of its large cargohold, it can often outperform the Covetor since you do not have to move back to station so often and can therefore spend more time mining.

 +**Covetor** 
 + 
 +The Covetor is the high yield mining barge with paper tank and a small cargohold (7.000m3). It is the preferred ship for public moons since most of the time you have other people there to help with rats and you often have a warning when neutrals show up so you can warp away.

 +==Exhumers== 
 + 
 +Exhumers are the T2 version of the mining barges. They generally work the same way just that they do everything a little bit better at about 10 times the cost.  
 +By the time you can fly Exhumers, you should have the skills to use the T2 version directly so below we have cut out the starter versions. 
 +During the black out, Exhumers are a bit scary to fly since they will be the primary target of small gangs and you won't see them until you are tackled.

 +<panel type="​default"​ title="​Skiff,​ T2 Max Yield">​ 
 + 
 + 
 +The Skiff is the T2 version of the procurer and can really take a punch. In high-sec they are almost impossible to kill/gank because of its tank. In Nullsec, if you need the extra tank the Skiff gives you, you are probably in an unsafe area or situation and would probably be better off downgrading to a T1 mining barge since they are more or less disposable compared to an Exhumer.
