"This deposit contains a good deal of ore. Breaking the rock will yield rock salt, flint, and other materials of varying value."

Breath of the Wild In-Game Description

Ore Deposits (383 in the standard Breath of the Wild Hyrule Compendium) are treasures found in Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

Ore deposits are small juts of dark stone typically found at the base of cliffs in rocky areas that will drop precious stones, Rock Salt, and Flint when broken.

Breaking ore deposits requires Link to smash it with a weapon or to blow it up using a Remote Bomb. Using large, two-handed weapons requires fewer hits than smaller swords or spears. While using a weapon causes damage to the weapon, using a remote bomb will cause the materials recovered from the ore to scatter across the landscape.

Albeit unusual, there's the possibility that these deposits yield no ore.

Tears of the Kingdom

Ore Deposits appear in the same way as in Breath of the Wild. They will drop precious stones when broken, such as Flint and Amber. Using a Bomb or Bomb Arrow is the most effective way to destroy one, though they can also be broken with weapons.
