401598415: Glitched Surface Mineshaft

This seed was originally found by Jason Metch on Twitter. It's a really cool seed which includes a glitched surface mineshaft just behind spawn. It's great if you want to quickly lay your hands on some treasures. But it's also just a really cool terrain generation with three different biomes.

Found by: Jason MetchTwitter Account

As soon as you've spawned turn around and look behind you and there you will find the surface mineshaft. It's also a quite cool mix of three different biomes (plains, desert and mesa).

The chests with minecarts usually include some good items so make sure to check those out.

It's clearly a glitched terrain generation but nonetheless quite cool to explore.

In the surrounding area you will find a huge dark oak forest, a swamp and a huge mesa biome. It's a great seed if you want multiple biome options from start.

I was playing and i found some diamonds. But after like 5 minutes i heard a siren like sound....
Good man!!
This is such a great seed. I Keep finding clusters of these glitched surface mineshafts. I found one spilling over to an extreme hills biome that bordered the mesa and another were a plains biome bordered the mesa biome. I'm still working my way around the perimeter of this mesa biome, it's so HUGE!!!
I found the most blizzard exotic glitched mesa mineshaft not that far from the first one, it is built into 2-3 mountains with lots of exposed mineshaft tunnels, what makes it look really weird though is that there is a mixture of grass blocks woven in with the mesa Biome blocks. Wish I could upload a pic. Looking at some of the other comments there may be more of these glitched mineshafts, I shall continue to explore!
This is the nightlock banned seed
Why is it banned?
This great seed still works in 1.5.0 there is also a possibly huge mineshaft underneath which appears to stretch underneath the plains, messa & swamp biomes ( I haven't explored all of it but have encountered parts of it bellow each of these biomes.
Can you add that there is a huge ravine under the mineshaft you spawn by. There is also at least a half-stack of gold ore to mine
Scratch that, at least a full stack
The ravine intersects with a large underground mineshaft bellow the surface mineshaft.
Lol I discovered this to my world too in Mesa biome only I believe it's not a glitch its perfectly normal almost all Mesa biome is like this
OMG. The mineshaft NEVER ends!!! It's ridiculous.
I made this world PE and did not find once i make a map i will go and try to find it but so far at spawn i have found nothing
Cool seed i really want to use it
1 more thing, 788, the oldest seed I know
Nice little seed SwellMonster, thanks.
Absolutely amazing. Definitely a good seed to try if you want quick loot!
Very nice seed. a portal built at the spawn location drops you just a few meters from a nether fortress.
