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 150g in year 1 and 250g 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 100-1,000g.
Mining an iron node will yield between 1 and 3 iron ore. These nodes become common around level 40-50 in the Mines. It's fairly easy to farm Iron Ore and coal by killing Dust Sprites there.
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.
