    What pickaxes do you have already?
    I have several, but really just two variations: Diamond + Mending, Unbreaking III, Efficiency V and either Silk Touch or Fortune III.
    What armour do you have already?
    Current loadout:
    Head: Diamond + Protection IV, Respiration III, Aqua Affinity, Thorns III, Unbreaking III, Mending
    Chest: Elytra + Unbreaking III, Mending — not bringing this mining; will make a better mining chest.
    Legs: Diamond + Protection IV, Thorns III, Unbreaking III, Mending
    Feet: Diamond + Protection IV, Feather Falling IV, Thorns III, Depth Strider III, Unbreaking III, Mending

    Haven't decided yet whether Protection or Fire Protection is better for deep mining.


    --Comprehension--
    What mod do we use to speed up mining? AutoSwitch.
    What are the 3 Ls for passages above? "All passages must be left Level, Lit, and Lava-free."
    What is the deposit to start mining and what does it cover? 14k for training, supplies, maintenance and theft/loss.
    How many blocks between each hall with chests? 250.
    What do you do with mined goods? Add to minecart.
    What do you have to worry about when filling in holes after mining ores? Make the tunnel level and well-lit.

    --Experience--
    What ores can you expect to find in a mine? Redstone, Lapis Lazuli, Diamond, Iron, Gold, Emeralds, Coal. I think that's all, plus some non-ores (e.g. Obsidian).
    How can you quickly neutralize a pool of lava? Bring a bucket of water; mine for profit.
    What can you do to quickly mine through the top layer of obsidian? Make hole; fill hole with water; stand in hole and mine. Also use a diamond pickaxe with Efficiency V.
    What should you do if you fall into a pool of lava? Get out of lava; dump water on lava and self; mine for profit.
    What should you do in a situation where you are swarmed with mobs and almost dead? Unless it has some effect on mining that I'm not aware of, I'll be mining on /diff 1, in which case the most dangerous thing I'm going to run into is my own lack of observation. However, if this happens regardless, escape and create a blockade between self and danger if possible, then prepare to deal with threats. Else, find a convenient place to die where loss will be mitigated.
    What should be done before mining diamonds? Secure local area; have Fortune III or Silk Touch equipped (which will always be equipped anyway).
    Should you ever mine the block above/below you? Only if you love dying and hate profit.

    --Availability--
    What is the nearest major city to you? (Or what is your IANA timezone from this list https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones.) Boise. I did ctrl+f on the page for "IANA" and found nothing. I'm MDT (UTC-6).
    When are you available for training? (Give a few possible times.) Little-to-no availability from Thursday evening to Sunday evening. Most other times are open or at least flexible. Mornings preferred.
    How often do you expect to be mining each week? (For planning purposes, there's no required level of activity.) Current circumstances are a little hard to predict. I'd say 2-6 hours on average, depending on how busy I am in a given week. Possibly more if the profit turns out to be impressive.
    Do you have any specific financial goal? I need about 2m for a derelict protection voucher. Lost my res one time (and a medium-sized unliquidated fortune) due to having taken a break for a while. Do not want to repeat this.
    Is there anything you hope to get out of using the mine specifically? Lots of profit.

    What armour do you have already?Full Diamond with mending, plus various enchants

    --Comprehension--
    What mod do we use to speed up mining? AutoSwitch
    What are the 3 Ls for passages above? Lit, Level, Lava-free
    What is the deposit to start mining and what does it cover? 14k covers everything and minimizes risk of vandals/stealing
    How many blocks between each hall with chests? 250
    What do you do with mined goods? stash in a minecart
    What do you have to worry about when filling in holes after mining ores? keep it level for convenience of others

    --Experience--
    What ores can you expect to find in a mine? coal, iron, redstone, gold, lapis, diamonds, and emeralds (if in extreme hills biome)
    How can you quickly neutralize a pool of lava? water bucket
    What can you do to quickly mine through the top layer of obsidian? place water before you start mining
    What should you do if you fall into a pool of lava? Get out. Use a bucket of water to extinguish flames. Figure out how you managed to fall in and make a plan to not let it happen again.
    What should you do in a situation where you are swarmed with mobs and almost dead? On other servers, press F3 and F2 to screenshot your coordinates. Not needed on EMC with compass and the notification that tells you the coords of your death. You can also try to put up walls to separate you from the mobs to give you a chance to recover. Logging out for a bit or changing servers will allow the mobs to despawn.
    What should be done before mining diamonds? Mine the area around the diamonds to ensure that they won't be lost when mined.
    Should you ever mine the block above/below you? No. Above, you risk death from lava or suffocation from falling sand or gravel, or mobs dropping in on you. Below, you risk falling into lava or a deep pit (or into the middle of a swarm of mobs). It is not advised, but you can mine below you if you are standing between 2 blocks, so that if the floor opens up, you won't fall. (If you decide to use this method, it is also a good idea to hold shift. This can be an efficient way to get to deep levels faster than traditional stairstep methods, though it doesn't provide an exit strategy.)

    --Availability--
    What is the nearest major city to you? (Or what is your IANA timezone from this list https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones.) Dallas. US Central Time, Daylight Savings observed
    When are you available for training? (Give a few possible times.) Nearly any evening after 8 CDT, or earlier if scheduled
    How often do you expect to be mining each week? (For planning purposes, there's no required level of activity.) Probably a minimum of 10 hours/week, with some times being considerably more.
    Do you any specific financial goal? Nothing specific. Hoping to raise enough funds to not have to worry about whether or not I can afford something when I want it.
    Is there anything you hope to get out of using the mine specifically? A more efficient use of my time to make profit than just mining/gathering/selling on my own.
  9. I'm sorry. I just got back from a family vacation. Are you still interested in mining?
  10. No worries. Yes, I'm still interested in making money mining.
