Gold Ore is a naturally occurring Resource in the world. It can be found within Granite.

It appears to be most common in Rainforest, 40-70 blocks under the surface, but can be found in many different biomes.

Gold Ore can be mined and refined to create Gold Ingots.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Gold Ore Vein Beta 8.jpg

Gold Ore veins have light streaks running through them with a subtle gold color. They look similar to the surrounding Granite and can be easy to overlook.

Location[edit | edit source]

Gold ore always spawns within Granite.

Rainforest[edit | edit source]

Gold Ore is likely to be most abundant in the Rainforest biome, 40-70 blocks below the surface, where it has a 5% chance to spawn. It is less common (1% chance) 20-40 blocks below Rainforest.

Other Biomes[edit | edit source]

The Warm Forest, Ice, Cold Forest, Tundra, Grasslands, and Desert biomes all have a chance at spawning gold ore veins, but at a lower rate than in Rainforest. According to game files, gold ore has the following chance of spawning in Granite at various depths:

Warm Forest[edit | edit source]

  • 1% chance, 0-16 blocks below surface

Ice[edit | edit source]

  • 3% chance, 5-20 blocks below surface

Cold Forest[edit | edit source]
