Block IDs & Crafting Recipes

  • Quarry Block (215) – 2 redstone dusts + 1 gold ingot + 3 iron ingots + 1 diamond pickaxe
  • Quarry Limiter (216)
  • Quarry Drill (217)

How to setup a quarry?

Begin by crafting a Quarry Block (2 redstone dusts, 1 gold ingot, 3 iron ingots, 1 diamond pickaxe).

Find a flat area and place down the Quarry Block. The fenced quarry with the drill in the center will automatically be created at the desired location.


Place a single/double chest on top of the Quarry Block to have the mined items organized in the chest. It’s optional but highly recommended as otherwise the mined items will spawn on top of the Quarry Block out in the open.


Face the quarry and tap on the Quarry Block with any kind of pickaxe to activate the drill. Every 16th second one layer of blocks will be mined while it’s activated.

Only valuable ores will be given to you. Dirt and stone will be scrapped automatically.

    How do I get the mod?

  3. I should have asked for permission first, but may I use this in a modpack? You took my Dropbox link down, and I realised I didn’t ask you. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Nothing ends up in the chest. It digs a layer but absolutely nothing ends up in the chest on top of it

      Hi Mick. Only valuable ores like diamonds and iron (and more of course) will be given to you. Cobblestone and such will be scrapped. I added that as a note in the post.

        um will you give the code so that it will mine everything plz
        i edited the code on my android and got it so that it does it instantly and a 100×100 without lag (almost instantly) and of course there’s options but that’s what i need your help with is i have it so that when you click it it will show a screen like the enchanting screen except you don’t need to use any recipes i would like you to make a better version of this or write the code so that it does that but i will edit it so it looks better( the user interface “the screen”) so if your confused then i will just ask you to create a “window”that popes up when you click the quarry block to chose between 5,10,50,100 distances (above whear it says speed and speed per second )thanks if you have any questions please reply

    EC3 is–okayish. There’s to many bugs and glitches in it for me. I also, most of the time, don’t want dirt and cobble. The speed of this mod I really like, as well as getting ores only. Now that Redstone is in along with enchanting, there is a monster use for this mod.

    Hello! I really would like to use this mod, but I’m not sure if it’s available for Windows 10 edition. I have tried the IDs, ad dropping the items on the ground, and I was wondering if there is a way to craft the Quarry Block in a Pattern Crafting table (Like in PC). Thanks, I look forward to this mod.
