Made by crushing either hematite, magnetite or taconite on either a stone table or work bench using either a hammer (stone, bronze or regular hammer) or sledgehammer (sledgehammer or bronze sledgehammer).
Hammers and sledgehammmers are not interchangeable in crushing projects. A project with a sledgehammer will process twice as much material per day.

|Material|| Amount needed for
1kg of iron ore
|Yield for 1 day of mining|| Amount of iron ore from
1 day of mining
| Processing time|
|hematite||1428.5g|| 750g (manual)
| 525g (manual mining)
4200g (fastest mining)
| .5 days|
|magnetite||1388.9g|| 750g (manual)
| 540g (manual mining)
4320g (fastest mining)
| .25 days|
|taconite||1538.5g|| 1500 (manual)
| 975g (manual mining)
7800g (fastest mining)
| .75 days|
Note: Processing time with regular hammer is double the number of days.
