Ore Deposits

More Ore Deposits

The goal of this mod is to add additional small ore deposits to the world. You can mine the deposits just like you would any other and you'll also receive drops. Each ore deposit will be added during world generation and appear in its relevant biome.


  • Adds small gold ore deposit to the Blackforest biome
  • Adds small coal deposit to the Swamp biome
  • Adds small iron ore deposit to the Swamp biome
  • Adds small silver ore deposit to the Mountain biome
  • Adds small blackmetal ore deposit to the Plains biome
  • Adds gold ore item that drops from gold ore deposit. Gold ore can be smelted for gold coins. (1 gold ore = 10x coins)
  • Ore drop rates are configurable in configuration manager
  • Translated in all 36 Valheim languages


New World: No additional steps required; ore deposits spawn during world generation.

Existing World:

  1. Enable console in game, see guide here
  2. Install UpgradeWorld mod
  3. Open Valheim game and enter your existing world
  4. Once in world, open console in game by pressing F5
  5. Paste below command into console, hit enter
  6. You should see a success message in the console

vegetation_reset MineRock_gold,MineRock_coal,MineRock_iron,MineRock_silver_small,MineRock_blackmetal biomes=BlackForest,Swamp,Mountain,Plains start

Note: The command will likely say "## skipped by having wrong biomes". This is expected and won't cause any issues.

If you'd like to only add some of the ore: First adjust the command by removing the prefab name and the biome. Then run the altered command.

Known issues

  1. Not currently compatible with SmoothBrain's Mining skill mod. I would like to make them compatible but struggled to get the code working.
  2. If you enter an invalid string such as '/' in the configuration fields it will send an error. The error is harmless and won't break anything.
  3. The smelter recipe for gold ore is incorrect in VNEI. It shows that 1 gold ore = 1 coins, which is incorrect. It's 1 gold ore = 20x coins.
