Gold ore is a mineral block found underground.

Obtaining[edit]

Gold ore will drop as an item if mined by a iron pickaxe or better. If mined by any other tool, it will drop nothing.

Natural generation[edit]

Gold ore generates in veins of 4-8 blocks (sometimes up to 16 if two veins happen to spawn together, and as few as 1 if the block that was supposed to be gold ore is occupied by a generated structure). It only appears in the bottom 32 layers of the map. From levels 2-29, gold ore's occurrence underground is at 0.1437% (about five times as rare as iron). On average there are 8.2 gold ores per chunk.
