To extract Ironium first you need to find the Ironium Vein in the mines. You can find the veins by exploring the mine and digging up the dirt. Once you find the Ironium Vein your prospector will extract the ironium automatically.

To increase the number of prospectors you need to build more prospector quarters. You can also extract ironium by using the ironium extractor. To build an ironium extractor you will need to build a workshop. You need to place 9 workshop tiles first to build an extractor and for any additional extractor, you need to add 6 more tiles to the quarter. Each workshop tile costs 300x money, 1x tool, and 1x board.

Place the extractor near the Ironium vein and it will be extracted automatically that will be transported to the factory by the prospectors. In the second area of mine Marshy Ruins, you will find an item called conveyor belt inside the chest. These belts can be connected to the ironium extractor and mineshaft to directly transport resources to the city.
