Gold Ore is a material found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Gold ore is used to make gold ingots at a smelter. It is not possible to make armor or weapons from it (although one can use it to improve the Dragon Priest Mask Konahrik), but it is possible to make jewelry.


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

Gold Ore VeinEdit

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.


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

Madesi in Riften asks the Dragonborn to bring him one gold ore, along with a mammoth tusk, and two flawless sapphires.



  • Pavo Attius is a known buyer of gold ore. He will buy any gold ore the Dragonborn currently has, at 50 GoldIcon per piece.
