Minecraft ore distribution model 1.18

In general, ores in Minecraft follow a triangular distribution pattern, with the spawn rate decreasing as the player moves up and down the Y-level. This means that players need to stick to the midpoint of the distribution to get the best mining results. Here is the chart for the ore distribution model in Minecraft 1.18:

Location of coal

Coal is probably the most common ore in Minecraft, with a very large distribution. Charcoal can be found from Y-level 256 to Y-level 0. However, they only appear underground and are affected when exposed to the air below Y136.

This means that the player may not find coal in the caves and will have to dig a bit to get it.

Location of copper

Players can find coins from Y 112 to Y -16 in all biomes. Regardless of where the character is, bow players should aim at Y-48 to get bronze.

The spawn rate of copper is also significantly increased in the popular Dripstone caves in Minecraft 1.18.

Location of diamonds and redstone

Both diamonds and redstones in Minecraft 1.18 have a high level spawn range from Y 16 to Y -64.

Y -58 and Y -59 are the best levels to find diamonds. Players should focus on that level to get these valuable resources.

Location of emeralds

Emerald does not change its original appearance on the mountain. With the increase in the size of mountain biomes in Minecraft 1.18, players will need to do more to collect them. The best level for hunting emeralds is Y 232, which can only be found in alpine biomes.

Location of gold

Gold is also one of the more common ores in the game, appearing at levels Y 256 down to Y -64. However, this only applies to the Badland biome, and only if there is a large enough land to support it.

If looking for gold outside of Badland, players need to dig from Y 32 down to Y -64, with Y -16 being the best choice.

Location of iron

Iron is a very ductile ore. It can appear at any height, as long as there is a land that can support it. Y 232 is the best way to find iron in the mountains. On the other hand, if players want to dig deeper, Y 16 is where they should go.

Location of Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli has always been a rare ore, and in the new update this will remain the same. The player can find Lapis Lazuli between Y 64 and Y -64, with a small frequency. The spawn rate can be increased if the player only focuses on Y 0.

How to collect and use emeralds

Prior to update 1.18, the Extreme Hill biome was the only biome where emeralds could be found. But now, 3 new mountain biomes have been added to the game: Stony Peaks, Jagged Peaks, Frozen Peaks. Players can find emeralds in all of these new biomes by picking up your ax and starting mining.

This ore is also available in emerald-rich structures such as Desert Temple, Jungle Temple and in loot and treasure chests in the Village.

Players can trade with Villager for emeralds and this is still the best way to get emeralds in Minecraft by far.

Emeralds were mainly used as a currency to trade for items, weapons, armor with villagers and wandering merchants. Emeralds are also used to power the Beacon.

An emerald can be substituted for an iron ingot, a gold ingot, a diamond, or a Netherite ingot in a lighthouse. Gamers can also use 9 emeralds to craft 1 emerald block for decoration.

How to collect gold

Loot from village chest

Gold ingots, the most useful form of gold, appear in treasure chests, village chests in Minecraft structures. While the player must explore structures and defeat mobs to obtain treasure chests, village chests can be freely opened for loot. Both the temple and the weapon smith's chest in the Minecraft village have about a 25% chance of containing the gold ingot.

Piglin or Zombified piglin

Adult Piglin has an 8.5% chance of dropping a golden weapon or armor when killed. Each Looting level increases this chance by 1%.

When defeated by a player or a tamed wolf, Zombified piglin has a 2.5% chance to drop gold bars. It can also drop items like golden weapons, although at a much lower rate than regular Piglin.

Treasure Chest

The player can find gold bars in various treasure chests when exploring in-game buildings such as the Nether Fort, End City, or Bastion Remnant to get the most gold, as the general rule of thumb is the bigger the structure. The more dangerous it is, the more likely it is to find gold.

Nether Gold Ore

Nether gold ore is a variant of gold ore found only in the Nether. It spawns in the Nether as blobs, from heights 10 to 117. The player can find Nether gold ore from all biomes in the Nether.

Gold mining in the world
