Nether gold ore is a variant of gold ore found only in the Nether.

Obtaining[edit]

Natural generation[edit]

Nether gold ore generates in the Nether in the form of mineral veins. Nether gold ore replaces netherrack 10 times per chunk in veins of size 1-10, from levels 10 to 117, in all Nether biomes. In basalt deltas, nether gold ore attempts to generate 20 times per chunk as there are fewer valid generation areas.

Breaking[edit]

Nether gold ore requires a pickaxe to be mined.

Nether gold ore drops 2-6 gold nuggets when mined with any pickaxe. Fortune has a 33.3% chance to multiply the drops by 2, Fortune II has a 25% chance to multiply the drops by 2 or 3 and Fortune III has a 20% chance to multiply the drops by 2, 3, or 4 for a maximum possible drop of 24 golden nuggets. This makes it more efficient to mine nether gold with a Silk Touch than with Fortune III: the expected number of nuggets is only 8.8, which is less than an ingot.

Usage[edit]

Piglins[edit]

Piglins will become hostile towards players that mine the ore, regardless if the player is wearing gold armor. The same case applies if the player mines gold of any type, not just the ore.

Trivia[edit]

  • In 2017, Jeb showed interest in a suggestion regarding nether gold ore that was posted on Reddit.[1]
    • This comment also suggested that nearby zombie pigmen, the mob now currently known as zombified piglins, should become angry at the player when they mine nether gold ore. Jeb also showed interest in this aspect of the suggestion, and this may have been the inspiration for piglins becoming angry when gold of any type is mined near them.
