What is the best layer to mine for gold in Minecraft?
Now that booster tracks can be created using gold ore, I seem to be getting through my supplies rather quickly.
What is the layer with the highest amount of gold? I'm currently looking around layer 25-30, but can't seem to find more than a couple of blocks..
Gold can actually be found at any depth, I'm pretty sure. I found some on the surface once.
I'm always mining on the second level on top of bedrock. That is 4-6 blocks on top of bedrock layer.
This area is very rich in everything. Tons of coal, tons of iron and reasonable amounts of gold/diamonds/lapiz/redstone.
If you're worried about lava, you might mine a little higher. I think diamonds spawn 10 layers and down.
