Bar of Cast Iron is a type of metal acquired from Mining and Smelting Metal Ores using buildings such as an Ore Smelter, Crucible, or Finery Forge. Due to the inherent dangers of mining and relative scarcity of ore, all types of metal are highly sought after. A Bar of Cast Iron can be used to craft any tool or building requiring a Bar of Hard Metal, as well as any tool or metal requiring a Bar of Common Metal.
To create a Bar of Cast Iron, Iron bearing Ores must be Smelted in an Ore Smelter with Coal. Cast Iron is often preferable over Bronze, as it is generally of higher quality and does not require the discovery of both high quality Copper and Tin. Cast Iron is also used directly in the Steelmaking process.
How to Acquire
Next, the ore must be loaded into an Ore Smelter. At least twelve units of Coal or Black Coal must 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, modified by whether you possess any additional mining skills. Any ore that does not become a bar will become Gneiss.
