Gold Ore is a valuable ore found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The material can be melted in a smelter to form half as many gold ingots, which have additional use.

Characteristics[]

It is not possible to make armor or weapons from it, although one can use it to improve the dragon priest mask Konahrik. Its primary use is making expensive jewelry.

Transmute[]

Gold Ores may be transmuted from iron and silver ore using the Transmute Mineral Ore Alteration spell.

Gold Ore Vein[]

Gold Ore Veins are mined with a pickaxe to obtain Gold Ore. Each vein, when mined, has a chance to produce a precious gem, like all other ore veins.

Locations[]

Gold Ore can be purchased from Blacksmith merchants, found as loot, or mined:
