Ark Survival Ascended Metal Locations
Metal nodes can be found all over the map of The Island. Mainly surrounding the hills and close to the lava of the Volcano. The regions rich with metal nodes mostly have other materials like Obsidian, Crystal, and Flint. You need to have Stone Pick to break and collect Metal from these Metal nodes. If you are not sure about how to recognize Metal nodes, then look for the rocks that have visible metal ores in them. As you can see in the picture above. And though they can be obtained from tons of locations, here are some of the best coordinates to mine them.
- Latitude 23.7 and Longitude 11.3
- Latitude 42.7 and Longitude 37.5
- Latitude 67 and Longitude 62
- Latitude 80 and Longitude 43.7

Some of these places have dangerous creatures, so if you are a beginner start with the locations with weak ones. Once you have obtained sufficient Metal for Metal Hatchet and Metal Pick, craft them and proceed to difficult locations.
