To mine iron you must be using a stone pick or higher. To make a stone pick in your workbench place a line of three cobblestone across the top and two sticks in a line down from the middle. After you have mined the iron you need to smelt it in a furnace. To make a furnace in your workbench place a ring of 8 cobblestone so that only the middle section is empty. Place the furnace, right click it. In the window that pops up put the iron ore into the top and fuel into the bottom. Coal is the recomended fuel source, although refined wood works decently. Using the iron ingots make an iron pick using the formula above except replacing cobblestone with iron. Iron picks allow you to mine gold and diamonds. To be used gold must also be smelt in the same manner as iron. A word of advice with picks: until you have a enough diamonds to make a pick use only stone picks except when mining gold, diamond, and obsidian. Iron picks do not have a high enough durability to make them useful in the long run. Never use gold tools, they are as pathetically weak as wood tools, in every sense. Gold is only useful for makeing watches and as decoration.
