Mineral Ores

Metals and other Minerals are found in ore form, and may be sold raw or smelted into ingots for 40.

Smelted ingots are worth 175% of their original cost, and so the raw metal must be worth 54 to offset the 40 cost of smelting and break even relative to selling the ore alone. But smelting also provides the chance that the foundry will return an ore, saying that it is actually a Mysterious Mr. Gnome in disguise, worth 1000, as well as the chance of duplicating the smelted bars if the sim has completed the Metal Collector challenge. This is a gamble that may make it worth smelting ores that are less than 54.
