I'm sorry, but I didn't have any good shots of me actually getting ores to the surface, but I did it like this:
-Go to coordinates on surface
-Dig straight down
-Place piston under ore
-Place redstone torch next to it
-Piston activates; pushes ore up.
-Remove redstone torch; deactivate piston
-Place cobblestone on top of piston
-Reactivate piston; push ore up 12 blocks at a time.
Not going to lie, my friends and i had a huge mine in a server, and pushed all the ores to the surface. Once we did, the admin banned us for item hacking(how do you even do that?) then another admin unbanned us because he actually checked and saw the pistons placed with big brother.
Also, you can mine and place iron and gold ores. :sleep.gif:
