Ores are smeltable and all of them have an ingot version except for cobalt, which is used in combination with other ores to create alloys. They will release small amounts of gases while smelting. The Arc furnace will release these gases into the atmosphere, and the standard furnace and advanced furnaces will each hold the gases inside.

Ore (Cobalt) is mined throughout the surface and underground of a planet or an asteroid using a Mining Drill.
There is currently no recipe to make Ingot (Cobalt). It can be combined in the Advanced Furnace to crate the advanced alloys Ingot (Astroloy), Ingot (Hastelloy) and Ingot (Stellite). Only Ingot (Astroloy) has a use so far to make the Tool Printer Mod and the AIMEe, so it is a rarely needed material.
Iron ore can be turned into an Iron Ingot by smelting it in an Arc Furnace or Furnace. It can be smelted into Steel Ingot using Coal and Iron Ore in a Furnace (not Arc Furnace) that has Oxygen and gas from Ice (Volatiles).
Nickel Ore is one of ingame Ores. It can be turned into Nickel Ingot by smelting it in the Furnace or Arc Furnace. Nickel Ore can also be combined with equal amounts of Copper Ore in the Furnace to create Constantan Ingot.
Reagent Mix is mixture of different materials. The Reagent Mix chunk is the output of the Recycler. The Reagent mix can then be placed directly into the Centrifuge and will be sorted into basic ores and more Reagent mix if the mix contains any alloys or superalloys. These mixes that can not be sorted by the Centrifuge must be smelted in the furnace or Adv. Furnace to reclaim the alloys.
Coal can be used as low-level fuel to generate power in the Solid Fuel Generator. Coal can be combined with Iron Ore in the Furnace to create Steel Ingot. When burned, coal provides sizable 40 kJ of power per unit. However, burning it indoors can be a bad idea, as it generates pollution that is bad for the Player's health. It can also be placed in the Reagent Processor to make Carbon Powder, an item needed for black Spray Paint.
Currently there doesn't seem to be a use for uranium. Not even the Nuclear battery contains it in its recipe.
Frozen gases like the oxites, volatiles, and Ice will melt if the external temperature is above 0C. If the planet or moon you are on does not have an atmosphere, the sun will also be a source of heat and will melt these frozen gases if not inside a Mining_Belt
Volatile ice is extremely sensitive to temperature and will sublimate to gas even at the slightest exposure to heat - such as being held in hand.
Ice is extremely sensitive to temperature and will sublimate to gas even at the slightest exposure to heat at 0 degrees Celcius or above, including being held in hands.
- A reagent mix cannot be mined and is gotten from a recycler.
