11 diamonds in less than 5 minutes out of my old strip mines using this. Amazing.
Scathing Lemon (15 days ago)
This is most efficient, UNLESS you have mending, efficiency V...becuase then you can just power through blocks like nothing and mining out that whole area in regular strip mines (leaving 2 block spaces in-between the tunnels) takes about the same time.

I just mine down and lucky to have lots of iron and at y:5 I am even luckier. I FOUND 6 DIAMONDS AND 4 LAPIS LAZULI AFTER DIGGING AROUND DIAMOND ORE (I'm not looking for it)

This may be the most efficient way to ensure no blocks are missed, but it is not the fastest. As others here have pointed out, diamond often spawns in a 2x2 area. Many assume this to mean that a single unrevealed block (3 blocks between "poke-holes"), will maximize efficiency. These astute miners have noticed that maximizing efficiency means minimizing overlap. Specifically, reducing the likelihood of two "poke holes" uncovering the same diamond spawn. An important detail to note here, is that diamond can spawn 3-wide. This means that using 2 unrevealed blocks, at four blocks between the poke-holes, and 2 blocks between the top and bottom levels, maximizes your diamond/time ratio.

This isnt the most efficient way. Go down one block above bedrock. Dig tunnels one block wide, 4 blocks high. Dig these tunnels straight out. When you reach lava stop and go to the start of the tunnel. Go to the third square on your side. Dig in the samw direction as your other tunnel and dig 1x4. There should be a 2 block thick wall between the tunnels. What makes this efficient is that you are in the area diamond most likely spawns and are digging with the best surface area without wasting time on blocks which dont reveal new information or blocks that only reveal one other block at a time. This means you will never see the blocks which are diagonal from your tunnels corners. This means for every 4 blocks you dig you will have seen 11 new blocks which might have diamonds, not including the next 4 you will mine. When you strip mine you spend a lot of time on blocks that wont reveal much, when you should be digging constantly at the highest odds of finding a diamond.

U make your own tunnels too!!
Why is antveonm at the peace ful map
Here is something funny I went on my legit survival world and went down to y 12 and made a x-3-2 tunnel for harvesting diamonds and ended up hitting the edge of the world and what’s even more crazy is that the world started as a large world then I extended the chunks 10 times so yeah it’s a pretty big world

I did this in the beginning. Then I discovered the divining rod. I go up to level sixteen, and start a tunnel. But I divine downward. As I dig down, I worry about lava, by making three by one hole downward. This ensures I can dig one downward, while still standing on rock, to avoid lava. It is even quicker to find diamonds. Using the talisman of repair keeps your tools in good shape.

Ben quemp (1 month ago)
Damn anty... nice effieciency, you literally cut the amount of blocks required to mine by half Actually more than half because you use the next level down to see the previous levels "floor" blocks

Hey i found diamonds in no tine flat, thanks
K463178 (1 month ago)
Wouldn't it be equally as efficient to not do side tunnels and just mine the holes in the main tunnel
K463178 (1 month ago)
Actually did the math and the side tunnels make you lose efficiency

If you dig 5 blocks deep without breaking the bottom part of the blocks, wouldnt you miss the chances of finding diamonds below it?

mindlessmaniac5 (2 months ago)
Doesn't this technique leave a ton of none visible blocks. Most notably the foot level blocks to the sides? This is why I am partial to the just dig a straight line every two blocks technique.

This is drift mining, not strip mining. Strip mining is a type of surface mining. I wish people would stop using the term "strip mining" because they've heard of this type and use it to describe any type of mine. Anything that digs tunnels under the ground is NOT strip mining. The access stairs down could mean it also qualifies as "slope" mining, but the exclusively horizontal shafts of the mine, I believe, would mean it falls into the category of drift mining. Some Minecraft forums and tutorials have also called it "branch mining", and I also refer to the separate corridors in my mine as "branches" as it's an apt description.

Let me guess. Chunk mining.
Blue Ouija (4 months ago)
Sigh. Just regular strip mining? If you find diamonds in a chunk, you're not going to find any more diamonds in that chunk. There's only one vein per chunk. So, if you mark the chunks, you know that when you find diamond in that chunk to move on to the next one. This is probably the first thing I learned about Minecraft and I think everyone should know this. Good tips though. I'll make sure to go to y=11 next time, but from experience I know that some strip mining methods still allows mobs to spawn when you use the minimum amount of torches, and you get plenty of coal from the mining anyways, so I suggest going every 8 blocks so that you both light up the caves and mark the chunks (every 2 torches would be a chunk). Also, it might be a good idea to set up a positioning system to get you back home. I just put all my torches on the left so that, when I want to go home, I turn around and follow the torches on the right side of the wall, but you can do it however you want (redstone, signs, etc).
Alexander the Gamer (4 months ago)
I think there is a much easier maybe just as quick and more interesting way to mine. Just mine a 26x4 at Y:11 and mine it over and over. If you find a cave you can save it for later or explore it then. It may cost more torches, but definitely doesn't matter when u get like a stack of coal every morning session.

Guy with enchanted pickaxe but no levels and 60 steak with no sword? seems legit
Another Guy (4 months ago)
even more efficient way: when digging the 1-block tall tunnels, put three blocks in between each instead of 2. That way, you still notice almost all the diamonds (because they come in chunks that are almost always 2 blocks wide) without mining 1/4 as many blocks.

The best way to find any ore is still a X-ray texturepack ;)
Theodore Cenabre (6 months ago)
How to find ores easily by changing ore settings: go to customized world, press customize, go to ore settings, then change the coal,diamond,gold,redstone,iron,lapis lazuli ore settings like this: Spawn size: 50 Spawn tries: 40 Min. Height: 0 Max. Height: 255 plz do this it worked and also no needed mods, commands, maps, etc.

diamonds actually start spawning at level 16.
jberda_95 (6 months ago)
This video is wrong for multiple reasons. Many people already pointed out that the side tunnel spacing should be 3 instead of 2. But also no one mines only diamonds, and when you mine more ores you have an even higher chance of tunnels constantly connecting, so an even wider spacing would be appropriate. Third, a diamond vein can only spawn once per chunk so when diamonds are found, you should stop mining and move to the next chunk.

Have you ever looked into the pinwheel tunnel layout? It's supposed to be even more efficient than the corridor layout. I like the idea of just poking a hole as far as your pick can reach, but I feel like you'd be missing a lot by not popping that leg path out.

Eh, I just dig down to Y 10 (I disable caves and ravines in world generation because I'm not a fan of them) in either two one-by-one holes (one for a ladder or other form of upwards travel, one for a water fall-canceller) or some form of square/rectangular pit (I've just done a 5x5 one). Once I'm at the desired level, I create a square/rectangular room, where the ladder and water holes meet, though those are a couple blocks apart; if I want to, I put some chests, furnaces and a crafting table down there. Following the creation of the hub room, I dig out several 2-high-by-1-wide (sometimes 2x2), 3-block-long indents to mark where I plan on mining later, with a two block gap between each indent (a one block gap would be pointless, since I'd be seeing the same wall; three or more's out because I'd be missing blocks). These indents are on either side of the hub room, to maximise efficiency (at least in my eyes). I then pick an indent to mine out, look at the F3 coordinates, and only stop if one of three things happen: a) I run out of pickaxes (since I combine them in the 2x2 crafting grid to conserve durability, and I tend to carry four stone or iron pickaxes at a time, not likely), b) I run out of inventory space, or c) I reach 100 blocks away from the start of the tunnel. c) is obviously the best scenario; if a) or b) happen, I fix those issues and then go back into the tunnel until c) occurs. Once a tunnel is a hundred blocks long, I seal it off with iron bars, to signify 'that tunnel's mined out'. Whenever I next go mining, I head to the next indent, and start the tunnelling all over again. As for collecting ores? Well, since I do like to have Cheats enabled (SCREW YOU, ATTACK SPEED - why do I need to give myself a custom helmet with attribute data, instead of it being a /gamerule argument? I also edit my gamerules, like enabling keepInventory, increasing randomTickSpeed (to speed up crop growth and leaf decay), disabling doFireTick (so as to prevent forest fires), disabling doWeatherCycle (screw rain), increasing maxEntityCramming to 95, and setting spawnRadius to 0. I also use setWorldSpawn if I decide to stay anywhere other than natural spawn, if natural spawn's biome sucks), I give myself a pickaxe with Silk Touch - so I can save Coal/Redstone/Diamond Ores until I legitimately get myself a Fortune pickaxe. Iron and Gold Ores, meanwhile, are mined with my non-Cheat pickaxe, since they drop themselves and not a resource that can be increased with Fortune. I later get rid of my Cheat pickaxe the moment I get myself a legitimate one with Silk Touch.

that's not called strip mining, strip mining is where you strip away at the layers of earth from up to down. What you're doing is called branch mining. *t h i s g r i n d s m y g e a r s*

Yes, it is. And you won't even have to worry about walking into lava that way! Just make sure that you dig down a block too when you find a diamond deposit, to check for more.
