Ferrous Ore is an Ore added by Thermal Expansion. It is found in lower layers.


Ferrous Ore is a primary source of nickel as well as a source of Platinum Dust, Pulverized Shiny Metal and Iridium Ore (IndustrialCraft 2). It can be smelted into Nickel Ingots or macerated into Nickel Dust.

When Ferrous Ore is run through an Industrial Grinder alongside a Water Cell it creates a Tiny Pile of Platinum Dust, which can then be combined into Platinum Dust and centrifuged to produce Iridium Nugget. If it is processed with a Mercury Cell instead, it yields a full Platinum Dust.

Without GregTech enabled, Ferrous Ore can be smelted into a single Nickel Ingot. Pulverizing Ferrous Ore in a Pulverizer produces two Pulverized Ferrous Metal and has a 10% chance to make Pulverized Shiny Metal.
