Getting Copper, Iron, and Gold in Stardew Valley
Stardew Valley has a ton of crafting options. Don’t believe us? Check out the full guide for that over here. You might notice there are a ton that require copper, iron, and gold bars. These aren’t so easy to get a hold of; you won’t be foraging for them.
Copper, Iron, and Gold ores can all be found out in the mines through the different colored rocks. The odds of getting them through these are heightened than when you pickaxe any other rocks, however, there is still a chance you won’t get anything but stones. Besides the mines, you have a chance of getting any of them from the special chests while fishing. If you have a lot of coins saved up, you can also head over to the Blacksmith to buy a bunch of ores from him. This can be very pricey, though. But it’s the best option to guarantee you’ll get the ores you need, as fast as possible.
Oh, and be sure to have an ample stock of coal, too.
