A Mineral Vein


Generated Structure



First Appearance

Update 0.1.0

Mineral Veins are Generated Structures that were added in Update 0.1.0.


Mineral Veins contain a cluster of Ore Blocks and can be found anywhere where there is Stone. Mostly underground, but where stone is exposed on the surface it can also expose a Mineral Vein.

In the Nether, clusters of Nether Quartz Ore can be found, but these are generally not considered as a Mineral Vein due to the lack of other Ores


The clusters are usually made up of connecting blocks of the various ores gathered in minor blocks within the structure. The structure is usually not limited to only one dimension, and will usually cover most blocks within a 3x3x3 area.

The following Ores may spawn in mineral veins:

There is no loot to be found beside the Ores themselves within a Mineral Vein.


  • Mineral Veins were the only Generated Structures that existed before Update 0.9.0.
