There are random ore deposits just about anywhere. There are mines all over the map, look for two pick axes crossed like an X or a smelter outside. Picks can usually be picked up inside the mines. The easiest one I found was west of riverwood (the starting town).
My question. Where can you find a "Bribe" option in a quest? or anywhere for that matter.
