- The following table uses live Grand Exchange Market Watch prices to calculate the profit from smelting ores using the Blast Furnace activity.
- This activity removes the need for coal and luminite.
- As a result profit per bar is higher, but there are additional requirements to use the furnace and it takes more effort to manufacture each bar.
- Ordan only unnotes ores up through mithril, but the nearby bank chest makes that unnecessary.

Metal | Ore | Raw cost | Sale value | Profit per bar |
---|---|---|---|---|

Steel bar | 1 x Iron ore | 516 | 924 | 408 |

Mithril bar | 1 x Mithril ore | 221 | 732 | 511 |

Adamant bar | 1 x Adamantite ore | 285 | 1,794 | 1,509 |

Rune bar | 1 x Runite ore | 1,191 | 2,532 | 1,341 |
