These minerals can be rare and gold ore is commonly obtained. In Solstheim, a vein is found near the Haknir sandbank, near some Reavers killed by Rieklings. In Solstheim, 3 veins can be found near Frossel. A mineral at the bottom of a clay bowl in Labyrinthian, as well as two veins of gold ore, although one cannot be extracted.
Inside the mine, a handful of Renegades are waiting for the player. Killing them will complete the short mission and will allow you to get a gold reward from Pavo. However, the real prize is the mine itself. The Kolskeggr mine is the only gold mine in all of Skyrim.
Within the area, there are a total of seventeen ore veins, each of which will produce three pieces of gold ore and, possibly, one rare gemstone. Extracting all the veins will provide an astounding fifty-one gold ore. Not only is Kolskeggr the only dedicated gold mine in the region, but it also contains more than four times more gold ore veins than anywhere else in the game. Even if you melt a single gold ingot into a gold necklace, its value will increase by 20 points, going from a base of 100 to 120.
Once the desired quantity of gold ores is acquired by various means, they can be converted into gold ingots in any available foundry. In the game, gold coins are the standard currency, officially called Septims, and gold metal can be mined, cast and forged for sturdy jewelry. These listed locations have a minimum of 4 gold minerals available for looting, and the Mehrunes Dagon Sanctuary contains 16 gold minerals, making it easily a target location for those born of dragons, who seek this manufacturing ingredient. In addition to the mining sites mentioned above, there are other destinations in Skyrim where your Dragonborn can extract gold ores from gold veins.
During your adventure, you can mine gold ore from several caves in the world of Skyrim and then melt it into gold ingots.
