As I said, I have amended the OP. Just bother yourself to read the section about stage 2. You will find a link to the spreadsheet there.
Just glanced through the spreadsheet and noticed there is *exactly one* known bauxite hotspot in the table. Do you or the Rock Rats know, are hotspots for the common minerals just extremely rare, or was this (and the Indite hotspot near Omega) likely hand-placed for the purpose of helping the CG? (I suppose that should be an and/or - they could be both rare, and hand placed. But what I'm really curious about is if they occur *at all* in other locations.)

They're just rare.

Another thing is that people tend to google such things and then simply don't look for other hotspots close.
At least that's what I did :D

I don't know. Frontier has not told us if they handplaced some of the hotspots conveniently near the CG locations.
 
I'm wondering how long this CG will last. It was almost at Tier 9 when I logged out last night. Of course, tier 11 is enormous, so it's hard to estimate it.

afaik, the scaling of the progress bar in the mission board is acurate, so you could measure it ;)
T10 seems to be same as T0-T9 , and T11 another 2 times
T0-9 were 500kt(?!) so another 1.5mt to go :)

The horizontal bar in the "select a CG" screen is accurate - and even with Frontier now publishing the top tier level, is useful for figuring out where e.g. Tier 10 might be.

The vertical bar in the CG details screen is less accurate, as there's a minimum height for each tier checkbox, so the early tiers appear to all be the same size, and the later tiers are slightly shorter than they should be as a result.

ah, ok, thx for clarification! :)
 
The top 10 commanders have hauled in more than 9000 tons each. What kind of rig do you have fly to check in this much tonnage? My little ‘conda does 138 tons with a fully loaded refinery. I can get this up to 360 tons if I radically reconfigure my ship. But that is still a lot of trips.

Cutters, T9's and T10's.
A Cutter or T9 can do 512 tons with just 2 cargo racks equipped.

I've managed to get my Phantom up to 160T (168T with the Refinery loaded) but I'm never going to get near 9000 tonnes! Wow.
 
My T10 can haul 256 (266 with full refinery) and takes me around 6 hours play-time to mine around 1000 tons of bauxite. It amazes me how folk can get 9 times that amount in a day, truly epic!

Takes me about two hours (maybe less) to fill up my 512 ton cargohold when wing-mining in the Bauxite hotspot.
It's all about the right amount of lasers and limpets and teamwork.
