My first step was creating a small area where the minecart track will arrive as well as a place to craft and store a few items.
This is what it looked like just after getting started.
After a little bit more work:
Here you can see the starting point for my open mine, I will just be hollowing out a very large area underground which I will hopefully fill with some neat underground structure in the future. You can also see the little crafting station from a different angle...
Aside from my open mine I have also been tunneling a straight path down so I can get to the lower levels. At the bottom of the staircase I made several small tunnels before running in to a large cave system, which I have yet to fully explore.
I have finally found enough resources to start creating the minecart track connecting my starter hut to the mine. So far the track is about half way completed, I am just in search of more gold at the moment.
Thats all for today guys!
Will post more as my mines get bigger and I get up to some more adventures!
