    Dear CP Players,

    Welcome to my CP Mining guide for CP 5.0! I have been working on this so called project for about a three months now. As taking on this new exciting role as a staff member I wanted to create some kind of useful guide for CP players who are looking to make the most money possible during their tenure on the server. This list will explain each mine in detail and show the positives and negatives in mining in each block.

    This was my procedure when mining in each block on the server. I used a efficiency two, unbreaking three diamond pickaxe. I would mine through each block in a stripmine 2x2x2 pattern, meaning I would leave two rows of blocks in between my stripmines on each level of the mine. I continued to do this for thirty minutes straight without taking a break. At the time I did have mcmmo so I used superbreaker when I could. I was between level seven-hundred and eight-hundred and fifty during the completion of this guide. I tried to mine during the middle of the night when zero to no players were on so I was uninterrupted in my mining, however; sometimes I did have to pick my head up to warn and help people on the server. These slight errors might lead to some inaccuracy if you were to repeat this experiment on your own.
