    East and West tunnels are also completed now. In addition, I have created a 3x3 clearing at Y:11 surrounding the spawn which connects to every tunnel.
    Enjoy the exposed ores!

    May Reset update:
    A new tunnel has been created when entering the mining world from spawn. Simply head north. The tunnel heads north at x:0 y:11 and runs until z: -2500. There is not a fancy stairway like the staff normally create, just a simple set of stairs. I will update again when more tunnels are completed.
    Enjoy the exposed ores!

    South tunnel is also now complete - runs at 0: 11: from spawn to the edge of the mining world. Enjoy the easier trip and the exposed ores.
    Happy mining!
    A special thanks to @Sharkykzn for continuing the work on these tunnels!

    @AdmiralD , have edited my post to include coords. Tunnel system is North of current mining spawn - Hope it is the same starter tunnel you did. ;)

    June update: Looks like @_Smokin made a beautiful stairway and a great start to the tunnel just south of the mining entrance. I have completed the south tunnel to 2500. Will update when more tunnels are completed.
    Enjoy the exposed ores and easier access to the edge of the mining world!

    The north tunnel is now complete.
    It baffles me why so many players feel the need to destroy the spawn area. This is one of the best chances for us to show our newest players they are welcome here.
    The stairs are a total mess now and even the arrow that pointed to the mine entrance has been destroyed... such a shame when that effort could be used to help others.

    July update:
    I have a stairway to Y:11 if you head east from the mining spawn and move to z:0. This is not a fancy stairway that other awesome players create :) but will get you down to 11.
    The east and north tunnels are complete! Enjoy the exposed ores and easy access to 2500.
    More updates as more tunnels are completed.

    Sad that within 4 hours of completion that there are players that would tear down something like this without taking a couple of seconds to replace a few blocks in walkways or in the case of last month every stair slab had been taken :(
    I agree that I should have widened that east tunnel a ways in... sorry about that. I have the north tunnel is wide at the start as well as the start to the west and south tunnels.
    There is a 3x3 tunnel completely surrounding the spawn at y:11 with branches to all directions from there.
