"You've found ore! When processed ore becomes durasteel, which is used to make buildings and defenses strong."

Ore deposits

Ore was a form of mineral suitable for smelting or processing. It was mined by droid or organic workers from ore deposits, and processed at command centers or ore processing centers. The ore could then be processed into durasteel.

Ore was found on many planets.[1] Most ores were mined and sold on the same world because of the costs associated with lifting bulk cargoes out of a gravity well. Unless no feasible substitutes were available in a region, useful but common ores such as copper, iron, and titanium were seldom exported from a planet and only in very rare cases out of a system. Only ores valuable enough to turn a profit after taking into account the transportation costs were shipped to other galactic markets.[2]

Notable Ores[]

Behind the scenes[]

Ore is one of the resources in the 2001 video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds and its 2002 expansion pack, Clone Campaigns. The mineral serves an identical purpose as stone in the video game Age of Empires II, being used in the construction of defensive structures and technologies.[1]
