at every time i try to get ore (even veldspar) than i get some pirate with a battle cruiser stealing my ore.
the only thing that is the best thing i can use is a destroyer or a drone.

how do you avoid can flippers?

Do not ask yourself why kill the miner/xeno ask yourself why not.

There is your answer.

Don't use a jetcan to store your ores, that's asking for trouble.
instead try and save up money for a ship with a bigger hold and just tough it out warping to station after your full, in the long run you might make out having more isk because its not getting stolen everytime you blink.

First off, thanks for taking your time to share your troubles with us-we are here to help you out. What systems do you usually mine in? If you can share this knowledge with us, perhaps we will send out a team to 'assist' you. We could make you a can to use and if they steal it, your trusted associates from C&P will blow them up.

Second, why arent you doing missions etc? They pay more, and may possibly be actually fun.In some of the missions-they give you quality ore to mine in the mission itself-so they would have to scan it down to get to you.

Third, can you have someone from your corp put out Giant Secure Containers with passwords you can mine into?
