Data Mining: What ores do you think yield the most ISK per hour?

Greetings capsuleers, I'm curious since I need to do some more intensive research into what choice of materials I use for industry, a question came up in one of my circles "What ore yields the most ISK per hour". Of course like anyone who's visited the EVE Uni channel, I said the Arkonor-Bistot-Crokite ores with the minor argument coming from other miners in my circle saying rich plagioclase or X is more profitable. Now sure Ice and Gas mining is more profitable but a little harder to come by, so for the sake of a discussion, lets set up a scenario.

What ore can we mine that will yield us the most ISK per hour in terms of value and yield in Tier 1 Venture?

I prefer the ore calculator.

And yes, plagioclase is quite respectable these days.

Well what more along the lines of trying to figure out is how quickly one can gather each ore type in a hour and how much it goes for because of math reasons

Mexallon is in short supply at the moment. Highsec ores that are rich in Mexallon include Plagioclase and Kernite. You can usually find Jaspet anomalies in highsec as well.

Price of ore / Volume of ore
Calculate for each type of ore you regularly encounter where you mine. Highest coefficient wins.
So if you mine plagioclase, and plagioclase is at 60 with a volume of .35 per unit, 60/.35 = 171.42. For veldspar at 11, 11/.1 = 110, so plagioclase will yield more per hour than veldspar.

By the way, in my own rented space all i have in not anaomalies is Jaspet. I dont do but go to assume you want know how many procurer barge loads need to do your daily income of plex (500/30)

Veldspar = 27.8 load
Scordite 31 load
Plagioclase= 23.4 load
pyrox 25.4
kernite = 20.7
jaspet = 20.77
spod = 22.93

Blue Ice endurances load = 21.52

For me is stupid mining in barges in low sec i i get the same in kernite systems. In last months of past year spod was three times better than veldspar, now i prefer to do three loads more of veldspar rin safety.

Rorqual destroy rentability of mining for practical purposes in all the other ships.

Ore prices will vary a bit by region, but recently I've been seeing that Compressed Prismatic Gneiss is one of the most valuable (most valuable in my region).

Arkonor -> Bistot - > Gneiss -> Crokite -> Spod

Plagioclase if you're undocking with a mining barge in Amarr, Arkonor if you're freightering in from nullsec to Jita.
