The entrance to Redbelly Mine

Redbelly Mine is a small ebony mine in Shor's Stone with a smelter near the entrance. The villagers describe it as the life blood of their town. It gets its name from the red mist that flows freely throughout the mine. The mist's smell is described as being similar to the sulfur vents located in the volcanic tundra.

Inside the mine

The local blacksmith, Filnjar, will request your aid in clearing the mine of a large group of frostbite spiders. The creatures recently took up residence in the mine after the discovery of some unusual ore. The miners will return to work once it's been fully cleared. The mine entrance is located immediately west of Filnjar's House.

Ore LocationsEdit

  • Two veins on the ground on the bottom level.
  • One vein on the ground on the descent just before the bottom level.
  • Three pieces next to the smelter outside.


  • Despite printed literature and dialogue in game referring to this as an iron mine and the fact that Grogmar gro-Burzag will buy iron ore from you, the veins produce ebony ore. It is debated whether or not this is a bug or intentional.
    • The Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch, version 4.3.0, addresses this issue. It changes the interior ebony ore veins and the exterior loose ores to iron ore, with the ebony ore veins relocated to a new small cave just to the east of Shor's Stone.
    • Otherwise, Filnjar may have some iron ore for sale for completing the quest.
  • The thick red iron mist described by the miners living in Shor's Stone is not present; the mine is clear inside.
  • There are several desiccated corpses within the mine despite Filnjar stating that nobody had been harmed by the infestation.
  • The frostbite spiders may respawn. See the quest page for more details.
