There are 3 ore veins that can be found near the Battle-Born Farm, one of each Iron, Corundum and Quicksilver.

The Quicksilver vein can be found northwest of the farm itself, on a small ledge by a collapsed stone structure that looks as though it was part of the Whiterun outer wall at one point.

The Corundum vein is in the same direction, just one ledge above the Quicksilver.

The Iron Ore Vein is a bit to the south of the farm. Stand in the middle of the farm itself, then look south at the windmill. You will find the Iron among some rocks to the left.
