A few weeks ago I made a post about the most efficient mining method in minecraft. I was asked by a few readers to expand my method of mining at level 11 to level 7 and level 15 but still dig every 4th block (3 in-between) with a 2 high 1 wide tunnel.
I found that mining at level 7 takes substantially longer due to the lava and obsidian that needs to be removed. It took 2.2 hours to mine a tunnel that only took me 1.5 at level 11. Additionally while it did contain some diamonds there were not nearly as many as found on level 11. The only redstone I found at level 15 was actually redstone that was hidden in the ceiling when I mined level 11. As the results show there is not an increase in any ore’s mined at level 7 or 15.
Here are the results:
Compare those to my last post mining at level 11:
|lvl 11||lvl 7||Percentage Change|
|lvl 11||lvl 15|
