In my opinion the retriever, its got the biggest ore hold for the mining barges, but the 2nd tier exhumer is probably the best. I don't know what it's called.

The Mackinaw will gather about 15% more ore per hour than the Retriever but costs 7 times as much to buy and outfit. I am staying with the Retriever.

The Hulk still has the highest yield per minute if you are using jetcans.

Wait, what? Did something happen that made Hulks worse than retrievers? I still mine using several clients in a fleet (all hulks, not using jetcans) and all hulks.

Retrievers now have a large ore hold that takes 30 minutes to fill. Hulks have a small ore hold that takes 7 minutes to fill. The Retriever spends more time mining and less time travelling back and forth from the station. Mining vessels are no longer made out of tissue paper and tin foil so it is much safer to mine now.
