Minecraft Ore Spawn Levels: Where to Find All Ores


Minecraft is undeniably incomplete without ores, as searching for ores is an infinite task in the game. Ores are the blocks that provide us with different materials to craft loads of items.

As of writing, Minecraft has a total of 11 different ores in both the Overworld and the Nether. Each ore is made up of different materials and comes with specific uses. Here’s a list of all those ores, along with their spawn levels after Patch 1.17.
