The entrance of Abandoned Mineshaft

Abandoned Mineshaft is an easy dungeon found in the Coalstruck Hills north-west of Portsmouth. This is a good place to collect military supplies a tier above what coastal towns offer without straying too far from the shore, or venture deeper and explore The Undermines - a hidden moderate difficulty dungeon found within this dungeon.

  • Once inside stand atop the red carpet and piston "detonator" to light the redstone "fuse line" and ignite TNT that clears the path.
    • Note: TNT cannot damage you
  • Continue forward, crossing a rickety bridge and rounding the corner to fight zombies and/or Undead Miners.

Second Detonator (Difficulty: 1/10)

  • The fuse line is connected to TNT, but it's covered by a moveable crate.
  • Push the crate by standing against it to move it off of the fuse line, then stand on the detonator to light the TNT and clear the way.
    • Note: Crate movement is restricted to the path made of gray concrete powder in the floor.

Box Puzzle 1 (Difficulty: 2/10)

  • A larger cavernous room contains a two crates in a gap in the wall and a steep cliff.
  • Push the crates towards the ledge to create a staircase and climb up to continue.

  • The detonator sits ready to be used, but has no TNT
  • Go beyond the barrier with the "NO ACCESS, NOT SAFE!" sign and around the corner to collect an "Explosive Charge".
  • Place the charge and press the detonator to progress.

Box Puzzle 2 (Difficulty: 2/10)

  • A large room contains a several boxes, two detonators, and a 2x2 TNT on a ledge.
  • There are 3 major sections to this puzzle, clearing the fuse line for the 2x2 TNT, opening the cavern to reach the TNT, and moving the TNT to be ignited.
    • Push the crates off of the fuse line
    • Move a crate on the right to reveal a small cavern with another explosive charge. Use the charge to open the cavern covered by the smaller granite boulder.
    • Push the 2x2 TNT down, move other crates out of the way and place the 2x2 TNT in front of the larger granite boulder.
    • Step on the detonator and head for the loot room.

Travel Advisory/Warnings

  • If in need of any essential items head to the nearby Portsmouth.
  • It is recommended to bring a smite sword to deal with the higher-health Undead Miners that get in the way.


  • Before it was rebuilt the oldest version of this dungeon was located near Sirus, built in the style of a vanilla Minecraft abandoned mineshaft. Its full name was Conagher's Abandoned Mineshaft, and it gave the now removed Helmet of Vision.
    • A video of the this version of the dungeon can be found here.
  • This dungeon was rebuilt in 2021, but was rebuilt once more with the release of The Road Less Traveled.
  • The Undermines, a hidden moderate dungeon, can be found within Abandoned Mineshaft.
    • Once obtaining the first explosive charge, head backwards through the dungeon to near the beginning, find a hidden room awaiting an explosive charge, and enter the secret dungeon.
