Tips and tricks for finding buried treasure in Minecraft

by March 14, 2022 0 comments

Finding treasure in Minecraft can be difficult. There are some good ways to find buried chests, however. If you're looking for one particular chest (like all the diamonds) then you should read our guide on how to find specific buried treasures .

This is really only useful if you know exactly where the treasure is. However, if you're just looking for general buried treasure then read on!

When you spawn in Minecraft, start by finding an area that has lots of trees (and maybe some grass).

Dig down two-three blocks to get to dirt and start planting saplings.

As soon as they grow up to be trees, chop them down and make ladders up to the surface.

If you don't already have torches (or some other light source) then get rid of your wood, make a crafting table, and craft yourself a couple torches.

Don't worry about making stone tools or axes yet, just use your bare hands. As soon as it's dark enough, go back down and start digging again.

How far down is buried treasure in Minecraft

The exact locations of the buried treasure vary, it is noteworthy to know the most common places.

This can give us an estimate of the most possible location.

Some buried treasure chests are planted deep into the soil underneath.

They could be 1 or 2 blocks down under.

These are the simplest ones you can dig up and find.

Some buried treasure chests, however, are so deep down that it may take you hours to find.

They can even be buried 10 blocks underground.

Some are 3 to 6 blocks underneath the ground, and some are not even underground!

A lot of users have found ‘buried’ treasure chests in caves, too.

It is also important to note that not all maps lead to the buried treasure.

Some also lead to other rare structures.

 What you'll need to get started:

Torches (or other light source)

Wood (for tools)

Enough dirt to make several ladders up.

When you find the beginning of a cave system, you need to know what is important and what isn't.

Don't worry about diamonds, they're rare and hard to dig out with your bare hands.

You should definitely grab any red stone you find, because it's used to make all kinds of cool stuff later on!

Iron is also really useful for tools and torches, but it's even harder to dig out than diamonds are.

Tips for digging in the right spot:

If you see any coal... mine it.

It's really useful later on! Also, if there are more than one lump of it in the same area, pick the darkest looking one.

If you see iron ore (it looks like an orange colored dirt) or gold ore (it looks like a beige/brown dirt), then mine those as well.

If you see a lot of coal, iron, or gold ore in one place, that's a pretty good sign that you're in the right spot!

A golden color indicates you're on top of gold ore/coal/iron...

Brick blocks are always a good indicator that you're on the right spot.

Ores look different when they're dug up, so if you see a square dirt block that looks like it's been dug up, you'll want to continue digging there!

Finally... diamonds! They don't look like anything special before you mine them, but they will make a distinctive falling sound when you break them.

Diamonds are the hardest ore to find, so they're important!

Anything that looks like it might be some sort of gemstone probably is one.

If you've got torches (and don't need wood for anything), then you can also use them to see if there's something special hiding in the dark.

You can keep going deeper and deeper until you find something good!
