Not really a guide by a way to help identify the type of asteroid needed, when you use the pulse wave in a asteroid field. Some Asteroids will range in color from yellow to really dark orange, these ones will only give you surface and subsurface deposits, the one's you want for this will have the colors as mention before with a noticeable red to it, Please see images of this type below.

"UPDATE 2/11/19 - during some recent mining it seems they might only be bright yellow now, not sure when this changed"

Here are images of asteroids and how they should look,

If you need a know how to use seismic charges, the mining video the game provides under training will help, there's even some videos on youtube.
