Iron is one of the five resources that may be turned into saleable materials in Imperialism and the somewhat larger number of such resources in Imperialism 2 (where it is usually called "iron ore"). You need one unit of iron and one of coal (with two labor units) to make one unit of steel in your steel mills.

Like the other minerals, iron is not evident at the start of the standard randomly generated game: you have to prospect for it with your prospector or explorer.
