This is the Mining Guide

Mining is a skill that allows players to obtain ores and gems from rocks. With ores, a player can then either smelt bars and make equipment using the Smithing skill or sell them for profit.

Location of Rocks

Neitiznot (North)

Neitiznot (North) contains all the types of Rocks. There is also a furnace/ anvil so players can train their Smithing skill at the same time.


Resource Area

At the resource area you can find pretty much all types of ore, except copper,tin,and runite ore. This is located in the wilderness, so do be aware of pvpers or players looking to kill skillers.


Members Zone

As the name of the place suggests, you need to be a Member to enter this area. Ores up to runite will be found in the Members Zones.


Mining master

The mining master (Gadrin) can be found at Neitiznot, member zones and some other places. The master can give you your skilling cape for free when you reach level 99. In addition, he can give you skilling tasks to obtain mining points or money (you will also get participation points when you finish your task). Finally, you can see his master's shop where you can spend your mining points.
