The explosion should create a perfect 3×3×3 hole. In other words, they’re a quick and easy explosive, and a handy mining tool. Dig a given access shaft out until their inventory is full. They have covered a lot of distance, therefore their chances of having lava run-ins are pretty high. Drifting can be effective in finding dungeons if there are mob sounds audible at a dead end. An effective technique if players want to find rare resources with minimal effort. The middle can also be hollowed (digging straight down should be safe so long as the player didn't find any caves or lava pools as they have made the staircase) out and a ladder or waterfall can be placed in it, with openings at different levels to allow for quick and easy access. this will reveal many lava pockets, so it is a good idea to keep a few fire resistance potions on you, you can also use beds, as they explode in the nether when used, but this creates a much larger and more dangerous explosion, as well as setting many of the surrounding blocks on fire. Supplies to bring while mining: Crafting table, furnace, sticks, cobblestone, water bucket, picks, swords, food, armor and fishing rod. At this spacing, the tunnels effectively become independent of each other and so, statistically speaking, the chance of encountering an ore are maximized because there is no chance the ore has been removed by an adjacent tunnel. Once the player have found a large enough space, dig down one space at the corner of their site. Now we move to a spacing of 2. This is a good mine for single player if the player can't stand the mere possibility of leaving 2×2×2 cube of diamonds just below or above their initial mineshaft and this will find them. Swords, bows and armor are necessities. In the. Due to being the safest layers to mine where all ores exist in reasonable quantities (especially diamond), layer 10 to 15 are usually considered the best area in which to start mining. Make sure to bring a sword, or at the very least, a bow and some arrows. Although the yielded amount of cobblestone, dirt, sand, coal, iron, and to some extent gold, will be enormous, and the possibility of lava is very high, this is not the best method for mining diamond and lapis lazuli, because they're found only at the bottom of the map. We can go on like this; as long as the second tunnel has a chance of encountering ore bodies which have already been removed by the adjacent tunnel, it will have a less than maximum efficiency. %efficiency = (number of ores collected/number of blocks mined). This also helps them to recover their items if they die. Completely Thorough: a mine that reveals 4 new blocks dug, and reveals every block within a chunk, is completely thorough. Crafting some of the harvested stone into stairs makes getting down and up even easier without jumping, though they need to carve out an extra block of headroom. A more practical definition of "efficiency" describes the percentage of blocks removed that are ores, in other words efficiency = (ores removed / blocks removed). Mining randomly is very simple: dig, dig, dig wherever and however the player just happen to feel like digging at the moment. Most of the silverfish will go into the stone, but make sure there are at least some left visible. There is a tradeoff between the spacing chosen between each branch of the mine. These are made by the same method as an underground base, except the open area is filled with water from artificial springs, lakes, rivers, etc. This type of mining is suggested for getting large amounts of cobblestone, iron and coal, besides the ability to gain large amounts of resources, this type of mining exposes many caves for further exploration and mining. This form of mining involves someone to make a hall way and then make a small opening in the wall. There are two places where they can put the ladders, but the two per corner type of the Central Drop Shaft style is preferred, however the other style uses less ladders. This is highly similar to Room Mining, except that instead of building rooms, the player build tunnels. The player don't want to delve into dangerous caves while carrying tons of iron and diamonds, for if they lose them while mining, they will be sorry. This section is for mines that focus more on aesthetics rather than efficiency. Bed mining is similar to TNT mining but instead of TNT, it uses this mechanic. Sword (for defending a player against hostile mobs) 5. 4 netherite scrap and 4 gold ingots can then be crafted into one netherite ingot. Exploring a large cave system almost always results in finding large quantities of ore, though players probably will find bigger veins of ore unexposed, because cave generation sometimes cuts off the vein generation. Lava will be blocked by the ladder, which can't burn (and even if it could, there's no place for a fire block to appear). If they are trapped in blocks and are suffocating, try to dig looking downwards. If there are any nearby abandoned mine shafts, check them out, they can use planks to make a crafting table and tools or there might be a spare iron pickaxe floating around. Torch placement is simple in this design. Players can also fall into a lava pool which will result not only in death but in all of their items being destroyed in the lava. If any does fall, they know there is something beneath. They'll have plenty of chances to get the ores out of the access shafts. Stone can be instantly broken by using an Efficiency V diamond or netherite pickaxe while under the effects of Haste II from a beacon, allowing the player to quickly clear out a large area. This gives the player a more targeted dig, and can often reach bedrock quicker and more safely than straight staircases. If players do get lost, they can dig up in a stairs pattern so that sand and gravel won't kill players and they won't be drowned if water comes through. It takes a lot of torches, though their coal yield is way higher than the amount they have spend on torches, and B. Torches (for light) 6. Without items, Minecraft would just have basic building, and luckily players get to experience so much more! TNT mining is considered to be one of the best methods for finding ancient debris. Efficiency: how many ores the player get for the amount of effort they put into the mine, or how many ores and cobblestone they get they dig to find them. For reasons stated above and more, it just seems like the best area to branch mine. A finished quarry with obsidian and lava at the bottom. This is the base of your tunnels. Vertical shafts are mined vertical tunnels used to gain access to underground mining sites. Now they can swim down, and if there was lava under the player, it will turn into obsidian, and will be harmless. Upon reaching the desired level, begin to dig at least 20 blocks into a wall to create a shaft. Despite the fact that they may yield many resources, players may use up several pickaxes or shovels in the process of making them as well as torches to light up the tunnel. The player can get lost, mine their way into lava and thus lose their items, into a ravine, into a skeleton spawner with 5 skeletons, or even into their own 40 block drop. Place a block and a piston in the hole. If players are mining in an area with sand or gravel, like a desert biome, they can break the sand or gravel blocks and see if any others fall. In addition, if a block is destroyed by the black or blue skulls of the wither, it will drop itself (see Explosion for more details). While this variation uncovers a large number of blocks at once, the explosion can let a large amount of lava leak in, making the cave hard to access and burning any drops created by the explosion. Below are some tips provided by the community for performing this underground work. The player will need the ladders to go all the way down, and such won't have a place for a torch. Instead, the player can use it for chests, and it works well for its purpose. Can be found between y=8 and 119, but is most common between y=8 and 22. 7. The walls and trail contain the silverfish, but lets the player see and follow them without being able to reach them. A sword is optional depending on the players preferred difficulty settings. Similar to 1×2, but players have more room to place torches, ladders, or footholds in case they fall off the ladder. If a larger level were used, the line would smoothly approach a maximum efficiency but never quite reach it. Turn back, return to the previous mark, then dig a tunnel until they reach the "gold" mark they have previously put. Fill in the middle and ascent sides as needed, as in the screenshot. Dig your main tunnel. TNT is useful for the first 5 layers, since the explosion will destroy grass and dirt for the most part. Beds do have the problem of having no fuse time before exploding, making it very likely for the player to take some damage.Furthermore, beds blowing up do not cause nearby beds to explode, meaning each one has to be manually blown up. Efficiency is approximated by blocks revealed per blocks mined, while thoroughness is approximated by blocks revealed per blocks in a chunk. There is a convenient, easily accessible ledge with chests, furnaces and a crafting table. Strip mining is a lot less fun than it sounds. During the digging of the first tunnel, several ore bodies are encountered. Another way to get many resources acquired from mining very quickly without having to use up tools or TNT, is to use the wither. Invaluable blocks (dirt, cobblestone, etc.) Also known as "Digging straight down". They are enormous bombing flying machine that will destroy everything under them. Repeat until the ore can safely be collected, or the glass block has revealed a hazard or confirmed all is safe. While doing this, make sure to be careful as the player might remove a block holding back lava or separating them from a drop or hostile mobs. That will only reduce the efficiency. Next, a 3-block wide pit will be dug all the way down to the bedrock. Central hub is under an area of flat ground, dig three deep holes where torches will go, ladders go on the bottom and top, torches in the middle, players go above the hub as normal only there will be a 2 high gap under the hangs on this first hub to allow for the ladders as a way up. Be careful not to mine back into the same area later and also, there is a low chance that monstrous noise might become disconcerting later. If their pickaxe breaks and they have stumbled into a cave and they have lost their way, the only option is to punch their way out and this could take a while. Regardless of how the player arranges things, they need to light the shafts properly to avoid monsters being spawned. Repeat as desired. Place ladders on the wall in front of the player and climb. A variation on this kind of tunnel-mining is to drill a finger tunnel into the stone for 20 blocks, placing torches as they go; retrieve any ore found; then recover the torches as players exit, plunging the tunnel back into darkness; then block up the entrance to the finger tunnel with just two blocks of surplus cobble. Can be found between y level 10-117 in all biomes. Starting from a flat floor, dig one block ahead of the player, then dig 2 blocks down to the right of that. This can be rather dangerous if blocks fall beneath players, but they can place ladders or dig their way out. When their quarry is complete, they can fill the area with a structure such as a skyscraper or a tall building. Like a traditional branch mine, branch mines with pokeholes have several parallel 2×1 shafts that branch out of a main trunk shaft. Never take valuable items when going mining. The player must also have at least 5 to 6 stone picks, one iron pick for rare minerals such as gold, and 3-4 shovels for gravel. In the descent shaft, torches should be place in the narrow side, primarily so that the player can keep track of which side is ascent and which is descent. A simple graph is produced: The results indicate what is expected — that when tunnels are close together they are not efficient because the miner will encounter diamonds which were already removed by the adjacent tunnel(s). Since both include "blocks revealed", they are often confused. The mine got its old name from its feather-like shape when viewed in a cave map or with an x-ray resource pack. Can be found below y=16, but are more common between y=5 and 13. Next, head back to the first corner that the player have dug in, and dig down one more block. Warning: Be extremely careful around this mine, as a fall will surely be fatal, unless they have covered the 2 bottom levels of it with water. They can deter miners by placing a large lava lake over the base. This technique used to be called "feather mining", but after xisumavoid's video covering this method, it's more commonly known as "branch mining with poke holes", or simply "pokehole mining". This could assist them in getting out of the trapped pit. This layout can compete with the phoenix mine in terms of efficiency, and is easier to modify if necessary, but it does require a lot of time for each trip. However, be very careful when attempting to mine by using the wither when in Survival mode, as the wither has many defenses, and is able to deal a great amount of damage to the player. However, the method is also somewhat dangerous, as one will run into many pockets of lava - for this reason, the player should have high-tier armor, possibly with fire resistance, and potions of fire resistance. Tiering: "stacking" one branch mine on top of another, in order to obtain a much greater degree of thoroughness without sacrificing too much efficiency. If they don't want to hold on to the stone that is excavated, they can use it to fill in dead ends, allowing them to navigate the remainder of the cave more easily. The approach, is to use a Diamond pickax, enchanted with Level 5 efficiency, and a Haste level II Beacon. Continue this around the perimeter of their site until they have a 1-block-deep trench around the perimeter of the site. This way even if they die, their items won't be destroyed by the lava. While it might be true that the ratio of mined blocks vs. exposed ore is the highest when branch-mining, it's not the quickest. This also works particularly well if they want to replace the top with glass. swords have less attack than a trident, but much more durability, a bow is very good for range, and has a good durability, but as you are in a closed area, it may not be as good, and a trident can be both ranged and melee with a lot of attack power, but very low durability. Mining in the Nether can be very profitable, because of netherite and nether quartz that can't be found elsewhere, as well as nether gold ore being abundant. yeah except that my mod glitches minecraft and makes diamonds not possible to find. The player may want to use the cobblestone to seal off caves already explored. They can also dig a shallower stair, two blocks ahead for each block down. After luring a batch of silverfish through their portal, they go through theirs. On the other hand, cave mining is also quite dangerous. Surface mining, including strip mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop removal mining, is a broad category of mining in which soil and rock overlying the mineral deposit (the overburden) are removed, in contrast to underground mining, in which the overlying rock is left in place, and the mineral is removed through shafts or tunnels.. Build the ladder all the way to the top. Then their crops won't grow and so forth while they are mining. Normally, they will want to use stone pickaxe for economy, but carry at least one iron pick for advanced ores (gold, redstone, and of course diamond). This technique is relatively safe. Can be found below y=31, but is more common between y=13 and 16. When doing this, don't forget that the maximum distance a piston can push is twelve blocks in a straight line. Aside from the above-mentioned signs. Methods for finding the ore generally fall in two categories: either caving or mining. Face a corner, and imagine that the corner block is the missing block of a 2×2×2 cube. Diamonds can be obtained from diamond ore, a somewhat rare block that occurs in 0.0846% of stone from levels 5-16. Many of these dead ends are actually thin barriers that, if removed, reveal continuing passages, sometimes into entire adjacent cave systems. Because of these factors, players usually carefully explore and light a cave before extracting ores. Random mining can very well be the most dangerous method. If they fall into a cavern and die, the footholds might let them break the ladders below it so they can drop gravel for a pillar, and perhaps retrieve any ore they have found on the way down, but be watch out for the hostile mobs. Instead of ladders, they could use a waterfall, but they had have to place that after "finishing" the stair (dig an extra pit beneath the bottom of the column to prevent flooding). this tutorial shows you how to create and efficient and affective strip mine. Minecraft considers sea level to be at block 62, and clouds start generating at block 128. With this setup, you mine stone instantaneously and can clear cut vast swaths of stone in very little time, exposing significantly more blocks / minute than with branch mining. The method is similar to in the Overworld, but because netherrack is easier to break than stone, it can be instant-mined. Players can replace the torches in the center of the hubs with a piece of glass and lava under it and it gives only one light less, providing that they placed them at all. I've been branch mining since Beta 1.1 and, from personal experience, y=12 is the sweet spot for diamonds. Dig a 2×2 hole and place water in two opposing corners and now they have infinite water. The difference between quarrying and strip mining is that the process of quarrying involves a large rectangular or square strip, continually mined downwards with a staircase running along the side. Then, make a doorway ahead to make another amphitheater mine. Generates exclusively in the. Ancient debris is used to make netherite. Sleep in the bed, and put everything from their inventory into the chest except for pickaxes, ladders, a stack each of gravel and cobblestone, and perhaps some torches. One must also make sure to bring two or more stacks of sticks, as they can quickly be crafted into a pickaxe, torch, sword, etc. Also, considering in most cases each chunk have one diamond ore vein, if their only priority is diamonds, they can place the top most branches at level 14 & 15 and dig branches from top to bottom until they strike a diamond vein and then skip the rest of the chunk. If you are playing on one of the devices that has a map, you should be able to see coordinates there. This makes exploding bed strip mining of the lower-levels of the Nether the best way to find Ancient Debris. Swimming does deplete hunger, but since they have less distance to travel, they still come out ahead. Netherrack has a very low blast resistance, which means that TNT mining exposes more area in Nether than in Overworld, while ancient debris, unlike the ores found in Overworld, can't be blown up. Also, a good length for each tunnel is 20 blocks long. Determine the size of the project. It has the disadvantage of missing some of the smaller veins, though it doesn't miss as many as players might expect it yields somewhere between 80 and 90% of the ores in a region. This is the start point denoted by the grass block. It spawns in smaller mineral veins than Diamond, you will only find 1-3 per pocket. Thanks to the seemingly endless quantities of quartz my 'scraper has demanded, I'm spending lots of time in the nether hunting the elusive ore. To keep track of this, press F3, and the Y-coordinate tells the vertical level the player character is currently at (It is best to mine at level 11 because it is easier to deal with lava lakes on that height). On interesting locations, players should add some kind of rail station with access to the rail. This method is useful for the creation of houses, barns, indoor-gardens, storages, and in the creation of hard-to-find/secret places as it offers a variety of places one may go to in order to find something, but they may likely give up in the process unless they are determined. Like mining in Overworld, beware of lava and make sure to keep tabs of where you are so you don’t get lost. Step one. Once a quarry is finished, they will have a large, deep hole. This method is useful for making minecart subways, large indoor-gardens, art galleries, tree farms, boat rivers, large barn(s), mazes, doing construction on vertical and horizontal structures, constructing strip mines, and secret/hard-to-find areas by making tunnels that seem to go nowhere. To descend to the bottom, simply walk into the shaft. This type of mining can be done at any level, and will mostly get you the same amount of quartz and gold, but this method is a lot more bland, but safer, and can get you ancient debris. The sides of the quarry have to be a certain length, for example with a two-space branch mine, the player need each side to be 3n+1 blocks long. This involves digging a long tunnel. They can then put a few blocks in the middle to prevent falls, but leave plenty of spaces to pop out of the waterfall for a breath. (Discussed later). These torches are supporting sand or gravel in the roof, preventing it from falling. It goes up with a 1 wide path in the center in all four directions and the both of the two wide paths go down until they merge, which is when it can do so without getting rid of the upward patch. Using the diagram titled "More compact 3-Space branch mine" (open the "Offsetting mine levels" collapsible to see it) leaves no ores hidden, however requires them mine more stone. There are several sorts possible: A straight staircase heads down, but also over. Some may not consider beginning construction on future tunnels due to lost supplies and the tunnel not being rewarding enough to continue. Place one torch in the end of the alcove as illustrated. This is a 2 space branch mine, but is constructed over the space of a single chunk, and is capable of ensuring that every ore deposit is found, while still only mining around 45% of the chunk's stone. Ethos discusses this in … It is recommended to check the Y-coordinate about now, they may want a push length that will allow them to get to their Y-coordinate value as close as they can to 12.
