Not to be confused with Abandoned Burthorpe mine.

Burthorpe mine is an underground mine north-west of Taverley and south of Burthorpe. It contains copper, tin, clay, silver, iron, and common gem rocks. It is notable for being very close to a furnace, 2 anvils, and a forge; all are also metal banks.

Linza and two miners were trapped in this mine during the Troll Warzone tutorial.

This mine is good for lower-levelled miners, smithers and crafters, as there is a furnace and anvils outside to smelt copper and tin into bronze bars or iron ore into iron bars, and smith them into items, or just to bank them for later use. A well, pottery wheels and pottery ovens are also available to process clay. There is a bank a short run to the north, to bank smithed or crafted items.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Previously, if teleporting was attempted from the mine, a message would appear saying that you were unable to due to being in ScapeRune.
  • This is one of the locations that a goblin raid can take place in.
  • Towards the western-most end of the mine, a chalice can be seen on a small rock ledge slightly out of reach. This is might be a reference to the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
