Ore is a quantity of rock which contains a substantial amount of minerals in combination, which can be broken down to extract and refine available geologic materials.

Ores are mined so that the valuable minerals they contain can be extracted and used. By the 24th century, Janus VI was one of the major sources of ores in the Federation. (DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)

In the 23rd century, ore ships visited the lithium cracking station on Delta Vega every twenty years. (TOS episode: "Where No Man Has Gone Before")

In 2266, Alfacite ore, a yellowish magentic ore from Alfa 177 was accidentally introduced into the transporter system of the USS Enterprise. The presence of the ore caused the transporters to divide life forms (including Captain James T. Kirk) into virtually identical, but intrinsically different beings. (TOS episode: "The Enemy Within"; TOS short story: "Ni Var")

During the Cardassian Occupation of Bajor, Terok Nor served as an ore processing center for minerals that had been mined from the surface. (DS9 episode: "Civil Defense")
