I want to go mining for ores, but I haven't come across one mine in my 20hrs of gameplay yet >_< Lots of caves with no veins in them, but no actual mines :(

Does anyone know some good mines so I can go look them up and deplete them? :D

There's a phenomenal Ebony mine next to an Orc Stronghold just SE of Windhelm

I've just been exploring and heading to the mines as they show up on the map.  Plus, I looked up a list of mines and the ores they contained online and it gave directions for them (if you're interested).  I didn't use those directions, I decided to just explore until I hit a point where I can't do any smithing because I can't find any.

I was wondering this as well, also do you need the pickaxe equiped or just to be in your inventory?
I set little value on my own opinion, but I set just as little on those of others. - Montaigne

You can also equip a pickaxe and swing at it to mine the ore slightly faster then using it out of your inventory. You can even dual wield the pickaxes and go ape**** crazy on dat ore.
