Minecraft Cave Seeds

Each Minecraft Cave Seed listed below has a cave at or near the game’s spawn point.

Chest Minecart in Abandoned Mineshaft

This is an awesome Minecraft 1.8 seed. You will spawn in plains with some flowers and there will be a village right by you. It is a small village with only four buildings, some crops and a well. The well is a special one, though. Below it is an abandoned mineshaft that has a chest minecart (a minecart with a chest inside it) with a bit of loot in it.

Precious Ore in Cave Lava Pools

Break that rule – dig straight down. One note, we’ve seen that in Minecraft 1.8.0 that you don’t always spawn in the exactly same spot. Just to make sure you dig where we did, we included the position we were in when we headed down in the screenshots. When you think you’re just above bedrock slow down. If you dig one block too many, you’ll break through the only block keeping you from the lava.

Surface Ravine Gold – Swamp Spawn!

Launched this game in Minecraft 1.8 (haven’t checked 1.7 versions yet) and the seed spawns in a swamp. Looking in one direction there is plains and the edge of a roofed forest. Right near the spawn point there’s a cool ravine. It has a waterfall on one end and a lava flow at the other. The best part: surface gold (13 blocks). You can see it without even jumping down.

Diamonds, Gold, Lapis (and more) in Under-Spawn Cave

At least 20 gold blocks, 6 diamond blocks, 2 lapis lazuli and more than enough iron and coal to mine it all out (and outfit yourself in iron everything) straight under spawn – that’s what this Minecraft seed has to offer. And, all of it is consolidated in one room of a cave that is directly under the spawn point. Out of all of it (and there’s lots of it) the gold is especially unique. One of the clusters is quite large.
