Mining is a skill that allows players to obtain ores and gems from rocks. With ores, a player can either smelt bars and make equipment using the Smithing skill or sell them for profit. Mining is a popular money maker for low level players. Gold and Runite ores can sell for a decent amount of money.

Leveling Methods

Fast 1-99

There are several methods to obtain 99 mining. Gold ore can also be mined from 40-99 for more profit. However, Coal and Runite Ore are the fastest methods.

Level Quantity Ore
1-15 10 Tin Ore Copper/Tin Ore
15-30 13 Iron Iron Ore
30-85 1,623 Coal Coal
85-99 815 Runite Ore Runite Ore

200M and 2B Methods

Mining Marble Blocks at the crafting guild or ::skilling is the best method for post-99 experience. Mining Marble gives a base experience of 15,000 Crafting and Mining Experience. The Sacred Clay Pickaxe is essential for post-99 experience as it increases this to 22,500 XP per Marble Block. Brawlers can be worn for an additional 30% mining XP.

Amethyst and Runite Ore are both viable methods as well. Amethyst has the added benefit of providing large amounts of Fletching XP. Runite Ore has the added benefit for providing large amounts of Smithing XP. However, you will need 4x the amount of Coal in order to smelt all the Runite bars.

Sacred Clay Pickaxe Sacred Clay Pickaxe The SC pickaxe is as fast as the dragon pick. Gives +50% Mining Experience. Does not degrade.
Inferno Adze Inferno Adze The Inferno Adze is slightly faster than the dragon pickaxe. However, the Sacred Clay pickaxe is considered the best overall considering it's special effect.
Infernal Pickaxe Infernal Pickaxe Smelts 1/3rd of the ore you mine, granting 100% of the smithing XP. It can smelt 5000 ores, after which it will become an infernal pickaxe (uncharged) and you need to use a smouldering on it to recharge it. If you wish to make steel, mithril, adamant or rune bars with the pickaxe, you do still need to have the appropriate amount of coal in your inventory. When uncharged, the infernal axe/pickaxe will act just like a dragon axe/pickaxe.
