Smelting is the process of extracting metal from ore by the use of material containing carbon, such as coal or charcoal, and intense heat. This results in a chemical reaction in which oxygen atoms bound to the metal atoms in the ore transfer to the carbon, to produce carbon dioxide and monoxide gas plus the raw metal. The leftover material from the ore which cannot be converted to metal is called slag.

Dwarves are of course known for their metalworking skills, and would appreciate anyone who can reduce rock to a molten mass.
