  1. Ok, so i decided to make my first guide on mining and such. Over the past 2 years (how ever long ago beta 1.6 was) i have played minecraft and picked up TONS of mining techniques that are good.
    Keep up with me in this thread because it may be a little sloppy with the screenshots but i will do my best to provide you with the mining techniques that will help you win!

    Technique #1: Strip Mine
    . You will want to find a good spot for a strip mine. Generally the location of Y:11 is good or anything below that. How a strip mine works is you dig in a block, then skip 2 blocks, dig in, and keep it on going. Like THIS: 2013-03-03_16.01.12.png

    Mining Technique #2: Quarry
    In a quarry the objective is to not get alot of ore but alot of stone. Quarrys are time consuming so I will just link you to one :)
