Recipes in Mining are listed under Smelting, a subskill which works exactly like any other crafting-profession. Although working like a separate profession, Smelting is part of Mining, and is automatically learned upon obtaining Mining. It's the ability which allows a player to process and refine raw ores into useful bars. Smelting is also often used to combine smelted metals into alloys. While many of the recipes give skillups, skill in Mining will normally improve by gathering ores. Processing materials in Smelting requires a forge.
