Lead Ore is the second tier of alt ores. It is a material added in 1.2. It is used to craft various weapons, tools, and armor. It can be found almost everywhere in small to medium sized veins. When a new world is generated, there is a chance that it will generate instead of Iron Ore. Lead is one tier above Tin, and one tier below Tungsten.
