Coal is a resource found in underground seams. It spawns abundantly in Wetlands. Can also be found in Grasslands that are wide enough (not the beach grasslands found around some Biomes) but not as abundantly. It can be mined with any pickaxe.

Strategy[edit]

If a Coal deposit can be found early game, it is useful as fuel in crafting stations such as the Campfire, Bloomery and Kiln. Once the Blast Furnace is built, Coal is outclassed by the availability of Charcoal.

Location[edit]

Wetlands[edit]

Coal spawns abundantly almost directly below the surface of Wetlands, combined with the usual height of Wetlands you can usually just drive right into the biome and get all the coal you ever need.

Grasslands[edit]

Coal can only be found in the Grasslands biome within Sandstone. According to game files, Coal has a 70% chance to spawn in bands 13-16 blocks below the surface. Coal bands spawn in a very limited depth range compared to metal ores. Bands (seams) of Coal may extend horizontally to reach other biomes and vertically to reach lower or greater depths.
