At what point should i start refining the ores ive dugged up for minerals to sell? I got a 73% return now with station (im in null) but thats not high at all from what ive seen others do, and even less with ice. Maybe i should just sell the ore/ice as is?

73% will give you benefit when reprocessing depending on ore you will refine. high trit ore's are not so lucrative atm. but for example mexallon is decent. Are you selling in trade hubs or regionally where you live?

Regionally for the most part since their is a fairly good demand for minerals right now as everyone is gearing up.

Just do the math, if the minerals give you more, refine, otherwise sell the (compressed*) ore.

*At least in highsec, some compressed ores sell for significantly higher than the uncompressed version.
