When you spawn, you’ll be facing a colorful mesa biome. These biomes have several features that make them appealing, including mineshafts on the surface. This one is no different, but to make it even more appealing, you can also find a desert temple near the edge of the mesa containing a diamond. That means there is no shortage of treasure on this seed.

There’s no traveling necessary to emerge yourself in the mesa. It’s right before your eyes when you spawn. You can walk straight into the colored clay terrain. Mesas are full of cactus, dead weeds, red sand, and colored clay. Sometimes you can find oak trees on top of the hills in certain parts of the biome.
One benefit of mesas is the amount of gold they contain. Usually, you have to go deep to find any gold, but in this biome, any cave with stone has a chance of having gold. Even if the cave is in the top of a hill, you’ll find gold.
Mesas also have a chance of having a mineshaft. You have to travel a little bit to find the mineshaft in this biome, but you’ll find it around 29 / 66 / 468. Parts of it are above ground, and you can follow the different tunnels deeper underground.
Even though this mineshaft is made of dark wood and is partially above ground, it has all the other characteristics of a regular mineshaft. There are the cobwebs and the spider nests with spider spawners. You can find chest minecarts with different items. (Hint: You can find your first at -17 / 73 / 525.)
The Desert Temple
After you’re done traipsing through the mesa, you can head back north to find a temple for more treasure. You’ll find it around 10 / 65 / -363. You may be a bit tired of all the traveling around, but this one is worth it.
Beneath the purple clay in the center of the temple, you’ll find four chests. If you can reach them without setting off the explosion triggered by the stone pressure plate, you can gather gold ingots, a golden apple, an enchanted book, iron ingots, saddles, iron, gold, and diamond horse armor, emeralds, and one diamond.
I’m sure there’s more treasure to be found in the mesa and around the rest of the seed. See what you can find for yourself!
