Iron Ore is obtained by mining iron nodes with a pickaxe. It can also be found in Fishing Treasure Chests, Garbage Cans, or any of the 4 types of geode. It can be purchased from the Blacksmith for Gold.png150g in year 1 and Gold.png250g in year 2+. It may also be dropped by Metal Heads or Stone Golems in The Mines, or obtained by Panning. The Traveling Cart may occasionally sell it for Gold.png100-1,000g.

These nodes become common around level 40-50 in the Mines, and may be abundant at levels 70-80. It's also fairly easy to farm Iron Ore and coal by killing Dust Sprites there.

Mining an iron node will yield between 1 and 3 iron ore.


Iron ore can be smelted in a Furnace to create an Iron Bar. The smelting requires 5 iron ore and 1 coal to begin and takes 2 hours to complete.
