Yep. When you go in the mines, look for areas with striped patterns - these are veins, and can either be a rocky pile on the ground or in the walls. When you approach them it will highlight as a usuable area. But you have to have the ax. You can generally get 2 chunks of ore from each vein, and occasionally gems as well. If you've cleared a mine, go back and look - once you find one then you'll know what to look for going forward. They all look alike - only difference is the color depending on what the metal is.

There are also veins in rocky/mountainous areas scattered throughout the map - I've only found two so far and have probably missed many more.
