Eighteen (only during and after the quest " Boethiah's Calling") veins are in Knifepoint Mine, which can be found at the Knifepoint Ridge bandit camp northwest of Cracked Tusk Keep.
Roughly fourteen veins throughout Blackreach; some are also labeled as a " geode vein."
Four in Goldenrock Mine at Darkwater Crossing, west of Mistwatch.
Four in Dead Drop Mine after the Dead Drop Falls archery puzzle. There are several pieces of ore here as well.
One vein on the island east of the Wreck of The Pride of Tel Vos.
Three east of Lakeview Manor and South of the Guardian Stones and West of the cave exit/entrance that leads into Helgen, in a small depression near the Shrine of Talos (these may spawn as iron veins instead). The Shrine of Talos is due east of the apiary at Lakeview Manor. The veins are on top of the mountain behind the Shrine, directly south of the Guardian Stones. From The Guardian Stones head east along the path. It will switch back to the west continue to follow until the fork and take the left turn. You'll see a sign for town directions and immediately beyond that a small rock pile. There's a natural path to the right of the rock pile continue to follow that. You will see a down tree on your right running alongside the path and a stump immediately beyond that. Go between the stump and the rock to the left of the tree stump and you will see you will see a couple rock outcroppings with a lone tree. Head directly towards the tree and just beyond that you will find the ore deposits.
