Minecraft Best Levels for Ores
Are you ready to go ore mining?

How to find every ore in Minecraft                                   

Ores in Minecraft are items that can be crafted, smelted or can help you smelt other ores into new items which you can craft weapons or armour with; the best example of these is iron which once you collect it you can use carbon to smelt it and then craft it into weapons, tools or armour, amongst other things. The downside is that most of these ores are quite hard to find and take a lot of time and resources, for that reason we came up with the top 5 best ways to find most of these ores and make your Minecraft adventure a lot simpler.


5. Loot

Loot is a great way to find most resources but it is also quite difficult since you will need to find structures such as temples or villages which most of the time are quite rare and sometimes you won't even find as much ore as you would with mining. 

What makes Loot great: 

  • No need to dig or mine
  • No need for smelting 
  • easy to find


4. Layer 11 - 15
