Iron ore detail.png

Iron ore is an ore that can be obtained through mining iron rocks, requiring level 10 Mining, in various places around RuneScape.

Iron is required to craft iron and steel bars, and is also a tertiary ingredient for creating granite crab pouches. As players increase their Mining level and use higher tier pickaxes, they are able to mine iron at quicker rates.

Iron, like other mining resources, can be stored in an ore box. 100 iron can be stored in a iron ore box or higher. This capacity can be increased by 20 at level 18 Mining and a further 20 with the completion of the Everything Is Oresome achievement.
