    I think this is a great idea. Maybe if Mojang adds a cave update this could be implemented. I like the overall concept is cool but I have a few additions. Maybe instead of being an enchantment, ore-finding could be a staff or a potion. I'm a long-time terraria player, and no matter what people say, I think the ore mechanics are great in that game. In terraria, there is an item called the spelunker potion, and it gives a sparkle to any ores in the player's field of view. Of course, this mechanic is easier to implement in a 3rd person game like terraria, but I've got a few ideas. 

    1. How it would work

    The potion would be called Ore Vision and it would have a 2-3 minute duration. When drank, the player's field of view would be significantly dimmed, giving a dangerous consequence for drinking the potion. Any ores in a 3 block radius (could be tweaked) would sparkle. If the ore was blue, the sparkle would be blue, etc. The duration and effect of the potion can't be altered (no Ore-Vision 2) 

    2. Where would you find it?

    This potion would be a great addition if Mojang released a cave update. The potion would be brewed with a new material only found in caves, giving people a reason to go cave-mining. The material could be a mold or a fruit only found in caves. The material would be rare to find, so it justifies the potion's usefulness.

    I think just 1 level of enchantment would work, where all ores are having "Emisssive texture overlay". To make it more balanced, meaby make it super rare [found only in dungeons or even end cities]

     

    it would look like in this picture:
