Although this could conceivably be done in any ship, I would recommend waiting until you have at minimum the Type-6 Transporter, and enough money to outfit a decent mining rig.

Needed items:
Mining Laser
Refinery
Collector Limpet Controller

Recommended items:
Shield Generator

I recommend using the Type-6 because you can get everything above and still have a bunch of storage space for your mined ores. You can mine in any asteroid belt or ringed planet, however I (along with most of the internet) recommend going for Pristine Metallic rings. These are asteroid belts or ringed planets that have "Metallic" composition, and "Pristine Reserves" listed in their info page, as seen in this image (not mine, took it from Google):

The reason I suggest that is because they are the best area to find Painite, Platinum, and Palladium, and you also find mass quantities of Gold, Silver, and other valuable ores, which make them great to work toward "Goldsmith" and "Painite in the Asp," not to mention making you boatloads of money. And don't forget to buy Limpets from the "restock" option in the docking stations, otherwise you'll be stuck manually scooping ore...and believe me, going from 1 million+ credits/hour to less than 50K is not ideal.
