Rare ores in missions?

So I understand that awhile ago, one could find more rare ores in missions, but they've been removed since. So were these just economy crashing amounts or were they more like 'teaser' amounts to get people to go find more in low/null sec?

Highsec ores. Doesn't make a difference. CCP just wanted to nerf missions in every way possible, so no nugget is beneath notice.

Thanks for that link, I'll have to check it. But that's generally what I was referring to was the presence of small amounts of the low/null sec ores to give missioners a taste of what's out there. Not enough to break the economy, but enough to get folks thinking of the possibilities of other activities in EVE.

This.

Don't know what the problem with them was.. it's not like Omber is worth a lot.. Even at those times, EA 1/5 was only valuable because of ore-quantities, not because of ore-quality.

There's a multi-part lvl3 mission called "New Frontiers" which spawns some Gneiss, or at least it did the last time I've ran that mission, which was several months ago.

Workarounds are not bugfixes.
