Gold Ore is a rare mineral block found deep underground. And about 5 times rarer than Iron Ore.

Gold Ore can be mined using an iron pickaxe or a diamond pickaxe. But be carefull, using a gold pickaxe won’t let you get Gold ore!

Gold ore is stackable.

After that you have to smelt gold ore using a furnace (and charcoal) to get finally Gold Ingots.

The best use is to create Clocks, Powered Rail, prestigious gold armor, or decorative gold block.

Given the supposed rare nature of Gold, Gold's most important usage is in the creation of Powered Rail. Powered Rail will be very useful to move quickly and to discover territories.

Gold weapons and gold tools

Using gold to craft weapons and tools is wasted :

- Iron is better than gold and less rare.

- Diamond is as rare as gold but really stronger.

- You don’t want to craft Gold sword because gold sword durability is the lowest of all swords ! Lower than Wood sword and for equally damage…


Same for gold tools : gold pickaxe, gold axe, gold hoe, gold shovel, are the worst tools.

However Gold is nice if you want to wear a prestigious armor. Add the blocksandgold’s cloack, you’ll look very classy!

You can find Gold equally common between 5-20 blocks above bedrock. Lava is common at 10 blocks above bedrock. So some players think that mining at about 12 blocks above bedrock is the best to find Gold easily.

Gold Ore is found beside stone blocks, in veins of 4-8 blocks.
