this is fairly simple.

first of all, you can use this to get the position right on the surface

BlockPos pos = new BlockPos(chunkX*16, 0, chunkZ*16);
pos = world.getHorizon(pos);


Now lets say, you want to have little pillar out of cobblestone, lets create a small class:


public class CobblePillar extends WorldGenerator
public boolean generate(World world, Random random, BlockPos pos)
     for (int i=0; i<=5; i++)
           world.setBlockState(pos.add(0, i, 0), Blocks.cobblestone.getDefaultState(), 2);
     return true;


Now, lets call the code in your generator class:


CobblePillar pillar = new CobblePillar();

pillar.generate(world, random, pos);


This would be it, have fun :)

i solved it on other way 


            BlockPos posM = world.getTopSolidOrLiquidBlock(pos);

            world.setBlockState(posM, MercenaryModBlocks.hierbaVerde.getDefaultState() );

            minable.generate(world, random, posM );


the trou ble is that im using minable  WorldGenMinable and its spawn to many  in the surface the others dont semm to fit how im triying to do i think i have to spend mi time doing mi own WorldGenMercenary or something like
