Since the new Minecraft 1.18 update, the terrain is being overhauled. Gold spawns are now different slightly from the previous version. To get the blocks mined, you’ll need an iron pickaxe, or more powerful. In addition, with the release of 1.18 is available, you are able to make use of the fortune enchantment for mined gold blocks. The blocks will allow you to get between 1 and 4 grams of gold per block that they mine. Then you will have to melt the ore at the time you’re finished.
Gold will attempt to generate three times the amount of a 16 chunk. But, gold won’t grow if it’s surrounded by structures or air. They can be located by mining any time from y-64 all the way to y32. The chances are higher to get the gold at levels of -16 or greater than that close to you. It is the same for all biomes with the exception of Badlands. Badlands gold is more valuable due to its higher amount of gold produced, and can be as much as 50 ounces of gold per piece. It’s also more resistant to atmospheric effects. They are the perfect way to find the gold you need quickly. Additionally, the gold found in this biome is much more easily accessible due to the fact that it is generated from y32 and above./p>
