 Vex –
I won’t give away the exact formulas, but I can state that for any colored ore, your chance to smelt that ore at the lowest skill level at which you can mine that ore is 50%, and your chance increases as your skill does. So, for colored ore, it is safe to say that you always have at least a 50% chance to smelt it, if you can mine it.
 Sannio –
I have a miner who is not GM yet, about 98.x in mining skill. However, his modified skill in mining is 100.0 due to the use of mining gloves. I found that I can read the stone mining and sand mining books, is this a bug? Does this mean I can mine stones and sand by now? No need to have unmodified skill = 100.00?
The fact that the mining gloves can boost your mining skill to the level needed to use those stone mining & sand mining books isn’t a bug. Feel free to take full advantage of the perks of wearing your mining gloves. :]
