Description
This deposit contains a good deal of ore. Breaking the rock will yield rock salt, flint, and other ore and minerals of varying value.
Common Locations
Greater Hyrule
Recoverable Materials
Ruby Diamond Amber Sapphire Topaz Opal Rock Salt Flint

Ore Deposits can be found all around Hyrule. They can be broken by hitting them with a Weapon or by blowing them up with a Remote Bomb. Hammer-type Weapons take less hits to break Ore Deposits than other Weapons do. Whether broken or not, hitting them with a non-wooden weapon or an arrow generates sparks that can start fires. When they break, they will drop Gems, Rock Salt, and Flint.[3] Though they're capable of dropping Ambers, Opals, Topazes, Rubies, Sapphires, and Diamonds, the less valuable of these Gems will drop more often.

When Ore Deposits are destroyed, they will be permanently gone until a Blood Moon. After one occurs, all Ore Deposits that have been looted will reappear.

Ore Deposits appear on the back of Stone Taluses, Frost Taluses, and Igneo Taluses, serving as their weak spots.[4] Attacking these deposits will high amounts of damage to Taluses. In addition, hitting them will cause Taluses to fall over.
