How do I mine iron?

PostWed Nov 16, 2011 10:41 pm

I found an almost-black colored brick which I think is iron. I tried to mine it with stone pickaxe (which is strongest tool I get without the iron) and nothing happen.
Can anyone post a picture of an iron brick? So i know if this is the right brick.
And also, off course, how do I mine this thing?!?

Thnx

Why don't you post a picture of the brick, so then we can tell you what it is and how to mine it! :)

Iron is randomly generated within the world, is some cases it generates in blocks breakable by gold tools only. In this case, stone tools just wont do. Sorry, but you will have to find another vein.

Usually Iron is mineable with stone, I think you may have came across silver. If you could, post the picture and we can confirm what type of block you came across.

You need a gold pickaxe

Thoes are not iron. Iron spawns in all types of blocks, from dirt to blocks only minable with gold tools. Iron ore looks like any other ore, it just has different color.

Here I have taken two photos of Iron and Silver. You can see that clearly, Iron is much darker than the silver vein.
(Please excuse the two diamond chests I found)

Silver:

Also, the green stuff is Mithril.

You craft them in the same pattern as the wood and stone tools, you just need the metal, and you have to be near an anvil to craft the metal tools.

I found a silver colored block, too. And I can't mine it with any materials, not even silver which is the strongest material I can get now.

I've encountered those dark shiny blocks pictured above (not the ones containing iron ore). I can't break them, even with a gold pickaxe. I think they function like bedrock which is unbreakable (in this version). The hardest rock that is break that I've found is Plate Rock, which there's loads of down deep and you'll need gold or mabe silver pick.
