Dark Ochre

Sub-types of dark ochre ore.

Compressed Dark Ochre
Considered a worthless ore for years, dark ochre was ignored by most miners until improved reprocessing techniques managed to extract the huge amount of Isogen and Mexallon inside it. Dark ochre also contains useful amounts of Nocxium. This ore is a compressed and much more dense version of the original ore.
Compressed Jet Ochre
This extremely rare and valuable variant of dark ochre ore was recently discovered by ORE engineers during early field tests of new moon mining technology. Subsequent testing has confirmed that this ore produces 15% more minerals than standard dark ochre when reprocessed. Considered a worthless ore for years, dark ochre was ignored by most miners until improved reprocessing techniques managed to extract the huge amount of Isogen and Mexallon inside it. Dark ochre also contains useful amounts of Nocxium. This ore is a compressed and much more dense version of the original ore.
Compressed Obsidian Ochre
Obsidian ochre, an extremely valuable member of the dark ochre family, was only first discovered a decade ago. The sleek black surface of this ore managed to reflect scanning waves, making obsidian ochre asteroids almost invisible. Advances in scanning technology revealed these beauties at last. This ore's 10% higher mineral yield makes it more than worth the effort required to find it. Considered a worthless ore for years, dark ochre was ignored by most miners until improved reprocessing techniques managed to extract the huge amount of Isogen and Mexallon inside it. Dark ochre also contains useful amounts of Nocxium. This ore is a compressed and much more dense version of the original ore.
Compressed Onyx Ochre
Shiny black nuggets of onyx ochre look very nice and are occasionally used in ornaments. But the 5% higher mineral yield is what miners are really after. Like in all else, good looks are only an added bonus. Considered a worthless ore for years, dark ochre was ignored by most miners until improved reprocessing techniques managed to extract the huge amount of Isogen and Mexallon inside it. Dark ochre also contains useful amounts of Nocxium. This ore is a compressed and much more dense version of the original ore.

Obsidian ochre, the most valuable member of the dark ochre family, was only first discovered a decade ago. The sleek black surface of this ore managed to absorb scanning waves, making obsidian ochre asteroids almost invisible. Advances in scanning technology revealed these beauties at last.
