Iron ore was added in the 1.1 Alpha update. When mined, it drops the resource block itself. It spawns naturally in the ground, slightly deeper than coal ore. It is a very valuable resource because when the player smelts it in a furnace, it turns into an iron ingot, which is used to make iron tools.
