Coal Alternative: Use the woods (not yet turned into planks) from a tree, put it in furnace. Use a fuel like stick. After smelting, it should be a charcoal.

Along with looking up at big mountains, I dug downwards in sand new the edge of the world....probally not a big help but still that is where I found A LOT.

If you mine deep enough into the ground you will hit rock. Mine around into that and you can also find coal.

Don't use wood axe to mine coal. Use the stone axe.

Guest said: 26th Oct 2014, ID #463549 | REPORT
You do it by crafting I believe 8 stone blocks in the crafting table
Guest answered: Added 21st Oct 2012, ID #546003
You have to mine coal with a pickaxe, same goes for stone, you maybe need a stone pickaxe I'm not sure. You do need a stone one for iron, and an iron one for diamond.
Guest answered: Added 3rd Nov 2012, ID #548681
You have to dig pretty deep whith a pickaxe
Guest answered: Added 14th Nov 2012, ID #551115
I believe there is a chance of receiving coal if you strike gravel with a stone or ++ shovel, much like receiving seeds from grass. I may be wrong though

How do u make a furnace
Guest answered: Added 23rd Jan 2013, ID #566475
Just Dix down a few blocks until you find stone once you find stone dig down about 1-8 blocks and then dig around you. It worked about 1/2 or 1/3 times. When I do I either find coal, iron ore or coal and iron ore at the same time.

This has happened to me to but then I figured out that you can find coal on the outside of a mountain only a little bit it's usually really high so I would suggest you lf you looked up. You can also find it by going down diagonally. Well I hope it helped you.😝😜😋
Guest answered: Added 25th Apr 2014, ID #623157
You have to use a pickaxe otherwise it doesn't come out, and you can find coal as these blocks of stone with black dots on them. They are found on high mountains or while mining.
Hope I helped!!!

Coal is found by digging down into dirt. You can also look at mountains of stone, and if you see black dots, you have found coal. You can also put wood in a furnace, and get fuel, which can also be used to make torches,
