Most structures are naturally generated in every Minecraft world. Having said that, one of the largest yet common structures is an abandoned mineshaft. They only generate underground, and players might sometimes come across them while exploring ravines.

Finding mineshafts can take some time. However, players can use seeds to create a new world where they will be spawned very close to a mineshaft.

4) Two mineshafts, ruined portal, and a village (Seed: 5538170042018939742)

Ruined portals are cool structures, and one of them is generated right next to the spawn point in this Java seed. The chest inside this portal has three obsidian blocks and some gold tools. Minecraft players can find the two mineshafts at (440, 35, 248) and (-24, 39, 264).

Not too far from the spawn is a plains biome village at (367, 70, 268). It does not have good loot chests, but players can stay there to avoid building a base while preparing to explore the mineshafts.


3) Mushroom biome close spawn (Seed: -491134409347305)

A lot of Minecraft players enjoy playing their survival worlds on an island. This bedrock seed spawns them on a decent-sized island with a mineshaft almost right under the spawn point at (315, 41, -4). There's a ravine at (345, 27, 56), from which players can enter the mineshaft.

Cave spider spawners are commonly seen in mineshafts, but this Java seed generates a mineshaft, which has a spawner on the surface. While exploring the badlands biome next to the spawn, Minecraft players will find rails of a mineshaft generated on the ground. Exploring further, they will find an exposed cave spider spawner at (-151, 70, -62).


Minecraft is replete with locations and items that are hard to discover. However, those looking for mineshafts can simplify their quest by referring to this list.
