Create a "Checkpoint"

If you are far away from your spawn point and don't want to lose your progress, just reset your spawn to nearby.

Dig Smart

Never dig straight down, you'll trap yourself and make it hard to get back out.

Cave Mining

Once you find a cave fully explore it and mine anything of value, it's quick and easy.

Keep It Lit Up

Mobs will only spawn in the dark, so keep your house lit up to avoid them spawning nearby.

Use the Best

Don't waste your time mining always use your best pickaxe.
