Coal rock

A coal rock is a rock that contains coal. Players with a Mining level of 20 can mine coal rocks with a pickaxe. Coal rocks can be found in numerous mines throughout RuneScape.

On occasion the rock may give a sedimentary geode or igneous geode.

Coal is used in combination with ores such as iron or mithril to smelt bars in a furnace to create armour and weapons with Smithing. Coal may also be used to heat a smithing auto-heater to keep your heat when smithing.

One of the best ways to mine coal is to use skills necklace to teleport to Mining Guild, and bank using either the TokKul-Zo or the ring of duelling. Another great method is using the Lumbridge South-west mine and banking at the Shattered Worlds Banker. Having an ore box can help reduce the amount of trips to the bank. The forge and anvil with the close proximity to coal rocks in Barbarian Village make it a great spot for depositing coal into your metal bank at lower levels.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Coal, like all other mined rocks, used to respawn at a rate indirectly proportional to the number of people in the rock's RuneScape world before the update on 13 March 2017.
  • Coal used to respawn in 45 seconds before the Mining and Smithing beta update.
