Because the mining operation was going to take a LONG time (try digging a 40 by 40 square all the way to bedrock!  That’s a LOT of work!) I decided to set up a mining base near the dig. This way I don’t have to waste time trekking back to the main base every day when it gets dark.  This also lets me have some storage for the cobblestone, dirt, gravel, coal & iron that I’m digging out.

I admit it may sound silly to save all of that stuff, especially the tons of cobblestone but I have long term plans that will need all of it and more.

Once the mining base is complete the mining operation begins in earnest.
