  1. From what I've gathered,

    Once you find Winter Island (likely able to be got in Winter? Like Spring Island was for Spring)
    you can put the Slime there and it should grow rocks! Using a Silver Hammer (?) you can then break these rocks to Mine Ore. (it works in theory as plants do normally) However, harvesters like the Orc Archer and [my favorite] the Mantis can't harvest the Ores for you like the Plants.

    *Note: The Mantis is found on the Sunken Ship south of the Shrine below the sunken head.
    Orc Archers are in the Earth Temple, 2nd or 3rd floor. (as are mimics / monster boxes -> Ruby and beetles -> Oak)

    **Note: Look under the question "How do I mine" for more details on Mining.

    I hope this helps ^-^
