The extractor has a 50% chance to double ores every stage, however the duplication chance varies from ore to ore. The more rare an ore, the greater the chance of duplication. This is mainly a balance factor, to ensure that the player doesn't end up with ridiculous amounts of the easy to find ores, and none of the other ores.

The final flakes, when smelted in a furnace, produce the same number of final items as the parent ore block normally drops (on average). For example, redstone drops 3-5 redstone dust per ore block, so the redstone flakes produce 4 dust per smelt.
