The best way I've found thus far is to go spelunking. I have a big branch mine set up at the adminium level but have found hardly any iron there despite like 2 hours of mining. I went exploring in a cave for like 30 minutes and found over half a stack.

Just go cave exploring and you'll find some. If you want to mine for it, I'd suggest staying well above the admin layer - like around layer 20 or so? I'm not sure, I haven't had much success mining for iron yet.

Okay I will try that later. My strategy so far has been to mine to close to the bottom then just mine straight, so that could explain it.

It starts with vast randomly-generated maps, from there you have the sandbox base, you can destroy, move, replace almost every single block on the map, crafting new materials from materials found around on the map etc. The icing on the cake is the survival aspect to keep the game somewhat challenging, and also makes it routine to build a good holding place to shack up at night time when explosive mutant 4 legged zombie penises come for you.

All your items get dropped where you die and you get sent back to the spawn area.
