Ore and rock type correlated?

There's some connection - you can find the details in the in-game guide (press 'H', search for the ore you're interested in, it should list the rocks it can occur in), but I think the most common ores (copper, tin, lead, etc) occur in a large majority of the various rock types. Rarer stuff like meteoric iron only happens in a couple of rock types, though.

You're not technically wrong, meteoric iron only occurs in suevite impact rock. However, that impact can generate anywhere - it spawns like a ruin, and doesn't care which stone type is normally there. So in practical application, meteoric iron doesn't care about the area's stone type, either. ;)

Already knew about that one.  Have a nugget on the ground <25 blocks from my homestead taunting me while I search for material to make bronze.  Gonna be some time before I can dig out that beautiful silvery metal.
