Adamantite ore is an item that often sells for a high price, as it can be smelted in a furnace with a luminite ore to form an adamant bar, requiring level 40 Smithing.

There are several locations to mine adamantite, but one of the best places to mine adamantite is at the varrock south-east mine.

First, go to the ore locations and start mining. Once the player have a full inventory, go to the nearest bank, deposit the ores, return to the ore location, and repeat. The player may also find sedimentary geode while mining, which can increase the profit slightly. The player should also keep their stamina up, and mine any rockertunity the player may encounter, as it can increase the profit.

It takes around 66 seconds to run to and from the bank.

For a close approximation of ore mined per hour (of pure mining) based on your levels and gear see the mining rate calculator.
