For other uses, see Mines.

Mines are locations in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and can be found all around Skyrim and SolstheimDR. All mines contain one frequent kind of ore, though the type of this ore varies for each mine.

Some mines contain enemies (such as bandits), some are abandoned and some have paid workers in them. Many Orc Strongholds contain a mine within them.

Unclearable mines replenish their ore veins every ten in-game days.
