Mining Turtle
Mining Turtles are upgraded versions of Turtles from ComputerCraft. When programmed correctly, they can mine in a square shape until they are full. A program for a mining turtle look like this:
excavate 5

This program would tell the turtle to excavate a cuboid with dimensions of 5 blocks on either side, and the turtle would excavate in the dimensions of 5 * 5 * Down to Bedrock and then return to the surface.

Another use of the mining turtle is of entertainment, a command that one can give is.

dance

The turtle then states "Preparing to get down" The turtle will then move in such a fashion it could be considered dancing. It will continue to "dance" until anything is typed into the robot again.

A mining turtle can also be used to make a 2x3 tunnel. Simply type in Tunnel X where X = the number of blocks in length you want the tunnel to be. This can be very useful for strip mining.

To refuel, just place fuel in its current selected slot in its inventory,open lua, and type:

turtle.refuel([quantity])

whereas if quantity is defined,it will consume the quantity entered,else it will consume all fuel in the selected slot

To see the Fuel Values, see? http://computercraft.info/wiki/index.php?title=Turtle.refuel#Fuel_Values

For more advanced stuff, see Turtle API.

  • Obsidian Mining

Given a single diamond pickaxe, a mining turtle can break obsidian infinitely and at the same pace as normal stone without being powered. Mining turtles are also impervious to lava. This is useful for quickly mining large quantities of obsidian early in the game. 

  • General Mining

As mining turtles don't seem to need to be powered, and do not use up their diamond pickaxe, they are arguably one of the most efficient and least costly mining methods, however they require considerable player attention to operate. 

Mining turtles provide a means of improving traditional branch mining. Use the turtle to clear the tunnel for zero cost, and follow behind collecting the exposed resources.
