Guide on how to mine iron ore in a New World.

One of the most necessary materials in the New World is iron ore. This is initially required for the assembly of tools, weapons, ammunition and armor. This guide briefly explains how to extract this resource.

How to make a pickaxe in New World

Before you start mining iron, you need to get a pickaxe. In order to create the most primitive first-level tool, you will need:

  • 1 unit of wood;
  • 1 unit of flint.

You can make a pickaxe in the workshop, which can be found in any settlement.

You should always have a pickaxe with you if you plan to mine iron.

Where to find Iron Ore

For ore, you need to go to the mountain region of the map. Keep in mind that the higher the terrain, the higher the chance of finding a vein, so do not hesitate to climb the hills. The veins themselves look like rather unsightly large stones of dark gray color sticking out of the ground.

The extraction itself is implemented simply. Click on the action button while equipped with a pickaxe. At the same time, remember that an iron ingot is obtained from three units of ore, so extract as much as you can carry at once.

How to make ingots in New World

It's just not possible to craft equipment from ore. To begin with, the raw materials should be turned into ingots, and the Smelting Station will help in this matter. They are in almost every settlement. Since iron is a low-level material, any melting furnace in the game will be suitable for its production.

Places where metal can be melted look like large furnaces, from which a column of smoke emanates. They are located mainly in an open area (that is, not indoors). In addition, they can be found on the map, where the smelters are indicated by a symbol in the form of a stove with a pipe.
