Default Automatic Prospecting

I get often massive amounts of ore for prospecting from my guild mates. A mod that automatically prospects all ore in my bags would be nice for that.

Blizzard does not allow casting spells/abilities automatically with addons. Since prospecting is a spell/ability it is not possible to make an addon which does this job automatically. You could turn on auto loot in the interface menu though, this way you wont have to click all the gems in the loot window.

For me, auto-loot only works on the first cast of prospecting... tis odd.

For the OP, you can just make a macro, something along the lines of:
/cast Prospecting
/use Ore Name 1, Ore Name 2, Ore Name 3, ...

I'm not certain but I thing /use uses the first item if found, then moves to the next. The one issue is that prospecting won't split across stacks, so you need to make sure any stacks that aren't a multiple of 5 are deeper in your bags than every other stack.

Okey, just tested... each ore must be on it's own line...

/cast Prospecting
/use Copper Ore
/use Tin Ore
...
