Mineral Chance is a mod created to make mining a little bit more exciting. It adds a chance to find a random mineral after mining a stone-type block. In the overworld these stone blocks are stone, andesite, diorite and granite. In the nether it’s netherrack.
By default there is a 1/50 chance to find a mineral. The overworld minerals consist of diamonds, iron nuggets, gold nuggets, lapis lazuli, redstone and emeralds. The nether minerals consist of quartz, golden nuggets and netherite scraps(1.16+).
All minerals have the same chance of dropping. The message when finding a random mineral can be changed and turned off in the config.
extraMineralChanceOnStoneBreak (default = 0.02, min 0, max 1.0): The chance a mineral is dropped when a stone block is broken. By default 1/50. Overworld stone blocks are stone, andesite, granite and diorite. Nether stone blocks are netherrack.

enableNetherMinerals (default = true): If enabled, mining nether stone blocks in the nether has a chance to drop a nether mineral. These consist of quartz, gold nuggets and netherite scraps(1.16+).
