Mining Runescape Skill Guide:
Mining is by far the most boring skill to train, but it is arguably the most profitable, especially at high levels.
To mine, all you need is a pickaxe. There are many types of pickaxes, but we will get to that later. Once you have a pickaxe, you can mine ore.
To mine a rock, click on it while wielding your pick or with your pick in your inventory. Once you mine the ore, the rock will turn a grey color, and once it turns back to the other color, you can mine it again. Higher ores take longer to respawn. For instance, it takes a longer time for mith to respawn than iron.
Types of Ores:
You must have a pickaxe in order to mine. You can buy pickaxes from Nurmof in the Dwarven Mine. Bronze pickaxes are sold in most general stores for 1 gp. The prices are as follows:
Gems are found in rocks. Sometimes you will get lucky and mine a gem. There are many types of gems, some of which are members-only. The higher your mining level is, the more likely you are to mine a gem. Members can mine gems in Shilo Village (after completing the Shilo Village Quest). Members can also wear an enchanted Dragonstone Amulet and have an increased c hance of mining a gem.
The Dwarven Stout is a drink that temporarily increases your mining and smithing level by 1. To buy one, go to the bar in Falador and speak to the barmaid. They cost 3 gp each, and last about a minute. Members can also get them from the Dwarven Pass under White Wolf Mountain (after completing the Fishing Contest Quest).
The Mining Guild is an underground mine, connected to the Dwarven Mine on the Falador end, that requires level 60 mining to get in. You can have 59 mining and use a dwarven stout to get in also. There are 36 coal and 6 mithril rocks in the Mining Guild.
Some random events only occur when you are mining. Rock Golems sometimes appear and attack you. Their level depends on your level, and its best just to run away until he disappears.
Also, rocks will sometimes start smoking while you are mining them. If this occurs, stop mining that rock until it stops smoking, or it will explode, damage you, and break your pick. If your pick is broken, Nurmof will fix it for you for a price, depending on what type of pick it is.
Finally, sometimes your pickaxe head will fly off. Go pick it up, unequip your pickaxe handle, and use it with the pickaxe head to fix it.
