Iron ore is an item which can be mined by players with level 15 mining from an iron rock. Iron ore is used to create iron bars, as well as steel bars using two lumps of coal and one iron ore on a furnace. Unlike the other types of ore, iron ore has a 50% (or 100% if using Superheat item) chance of creating an iron bar when smelting.
