One of the easiest and perhaps most common ways players find iron in Minecraft is exploring caves. The caves are great for finding all kinds of ores because they expose a lot of rock to the players.

The plains are similar to caves, except that ravines can choose between even more exposed ores. Ravens are large slices in the earth that expose iron, diamonds, water, lava, gold and various other ores.

Farms of iron golem

After players have searched caves and mines, they may be running out of natural iron. This is fine, as there are other more creative methods for obtaining iron from mining.

Players can run huge iron farms that not only supply the player with a sufficient amount of iron but also XP. To start farm of iron giants players will first need an iron golem, villagers and a few mobs.

Players should place the mob near the villagers, but make sure to keep them separate so that the mob cannot kill the villagers. This will cause the villagers to panic and spawn an iron giant.
