An ore is a mineral which contains at least one element, usually a metal, that can be extracted by practical means. e.g. Both Magnetite and Hypersthene are minerals containing substantial fractions of iron, but only magnetite is considered iron ore, because the iron in hypersthene is so strongly bound that it is impractical to produce iron from it.
