Update 0.1.0

Gold Ore is a type of Ore that can be mined with an Iron Pickaxe and smelted into Gold Ingots with a Furnace.


Gold Ore is located deep underground, usually around layer 9 through 16, which is about the same layer as where Diamond can be found. Gold Ore are found in groups of about 3-5, about the same as Iron Ore. As of Update 0.10.0, Gold Ore may be found at any elevation in Mesa Biomes.


  • Even though the Ore was added in Update 0.1.0, it couldn't be smelted into Gold Ingots until Update 0.3.2.
  • Gold Ore can be smelted into Gold Ingots, which is what Zombie Pigmen dropped when killed, prior to 0.12.1.
  • It is most commonly found around the 9th layer from Bedrock.
  • Gold Ore is the fourth rarest ore next to Lapis Lazuli, Diamond, and Emerald.
  • It is the only ore that cannot be mined with its own material.
  • It can be found at any layer in Mesa Biomes and Mesa Mineshafts.
  • Like Iron Ore, when mined, it will only drop the block.
