Minecraft -21- Branch Mine Results First Level



May 13th, 2011 10:08 am | by Ed |

After entirely too many delays I have finally gotten the main shaft down to bedrock and actually started the branch mine.

The way I've been doing the mine is as follows.

From the central shaft I dug a main corridor 2 blocks high by 3 wide. Along this corridor I dug 15 branches 1 wide by 2 high spaced two blocks apart. In each branch I dug 4 blocks in, placed a torch and continued this pattern for 15 torches (60 blocks) or until I ran into lava in which case I plugged it up and went on to the next branch.

This allowed me to cover a vast area (approximately 123 x 90 if I have the math right) and in that space I've exposed and extracted ALL of the valuable ores and diamonds.

Just for the heck of it I kept track of what I extracted from this first level of the mine. Full details are in the video.
