Mining brings with it rare resources and valuable rewards. This guide on How To Mine In Spellforce Conquest Of Eo explains how the mining system works as you need to both find specific locations on the world map and also have units with very specific abilities.
When you are exploring the world you will often find hexes that include special resources. Theses nodes will explain that the resources can either be harvested or be mined. For the resources that can be mined you need to recruit specific units, march them to the location, and then use the ability of that unit to mine the ore itself. It can take several turns before the ore is mined and if you move the unit, the process will restart. Once mined, the node vanishes and does not return.

The simplest way to mine is to find Human Workers. These talented folk have a special ability called World Skill: Mine Ore, which is the exact ability you need to mine various types of metals. You can recruit the Human Workers very early on in most of the starting locations, but there are other units.
For example. Using Necromancy and certain items grants skills to the unit that the unit would not usually have, such as World Skill: Mine Ore. However, if you are unable to train any units specifically, you can hunt down a nearby settlement or unlock the Human Barracks to be able to recruit and train Human Workers.
