It can be used to craft any tool or building requiring Hard Metal, as well as any tool or metal requiring Any Metal. Iron is often preferable over Bronze, as it is generally of higher quality and does not require the discovery of both higher quality Copper and Tin to surpass. Cast Iron is also used directly in the Steelmaking process.
How to Acquire
Next, the ore must be loaded into an ore smelter. Twelve units of Coal or Black Coal should also be added to the smelter by right-clicking on it, while holding a unit of coal on the cursor. Finally, use a Firebrand or Torch to light the smelter.
After roughly 50 minutes, the process will be complete. The percentage of ore to bars will be directly resultant of the type of ore smelted, being anywhere from 5% (Chalcopyrite) to 30% (Black Ore), modified by whether you possess any additional mining skills. Any ore that does not become a bar will become Gneiss.
