Mineshafts generate naturally within the Overworld; they’re normally discovered underground however can sometimes be discovered within the ocean. They’re generated earlier than chunk options resembling ores. A number of mineshafts can generate close to one another and intersect, producing bigger complexes. On a facet word, mineshafts can intersect with different cave programs, and corridors generate a flooring of picket planks in the event that they cross over empty area.

Mineshafts usually generate on the floor in badlands biomes. Badlands mineshafts are composed of darkish oak planks and fences, and generated railways are extra full above floor. Since badlands biomes generate gold ore much more usually and at larger altitudes than different biomes, heading to mineshafts there may be smart if one intends to collect a profitable gold haul for piglin bartering within the Nether.
