I understand there is three levels of scoring for Mineral Resources, how do I reach 100. If you can provide the exact amount of each mining resources.

    how much you got?

    there is a way to increase military strength for ever until you are bored with multiplayer and promoting level 20 chars and not mining at mass effect 2 :P

    Not 100% sure what you're referring to here. Are you referring to the War Asset you gained when importing Shep from ME2?

    Note sure if this will help, but my Imported Shepard from a PS3 version of ME2 (so only used the digital comic for ME) has the following (which is more than enough to get the 100 mineral war assets for ME3):

    Palladium: 165815
    Iriduim: 156622
    Platinum: 113426
    Element Zero: 34146

    I've replayed Mass Effect 1 & 2 several times and imported into Mass Effect 3 several times in order to answer this.

    GarrusVakarian (so jealous of that user name) is correct in that using the digital comic for ME and getting a lot of resources in ME 2 will give you 100 on the Mineral Resources War Asset.
    However, there is a huge caveat. If you actually played ME 1 your score will be different because in ME 1 there are collection quests (minerals, elements, insignia, etc.). There are more minerals in ME 1 than the requirement needed to complete the quest. If you actually get more of a mineral/element than you need it deFlags that section of the quest and it looks like you didn't complete the quest.
    For instance if you need 20 of one of the minerals in Mass Effect 1, and get 21 it takes the grayed out completed mineral and makes it White again indicating that that section isn't complete. You can still complete the quest in ME but the flag in the import file gets wonky and when you finally import your ME2 save into ME3 the game thinks you didn't complete that mineral quest in ME 1.
