Where to find more Assassin's Creed Valhalla carbon ingots

Carbon ingots are one of Assassin's Creed Valhalla's most valuable resources, but where do you get the much-desired metal from? Put simply, you need to hunt down treasure chests. Once you've revealed the surrounding area by synchronising, look for the gold dots. These indicate treasure. Small gold ones are chests usually with just leather and iron ore, while the brighter gold markers can be anything from new gear to Books of Knowledge to carbon ingots. When you get close enough, the gold marker will change into specific icon. If it becomes three bars of metal stacked in a pyramid shape, then you've found a carbon ingot.
