Clay is an item that is always in demand due to soft clay being used in Crafting. There are many locations to mine clay, but one of the best locations is in the Burthorpe mines, located southwest of the bank. Once you have a full inventory, leave the mines and deposit your clay at the bank.

Players can also use Bracelet of clay to further boost their hourly profit. Each bracelet will allow the player to mine 28 soft clay before disintegrating. Players will need a bit more than 33 bracelets and make a profit of 822,164.29 per hour.

It takes around 40 seconds running to and from the bank. Depending on your mining level and pickaxe your profit will be a bit different. There will be no increased ore per hour after steel pickaxe. For a close approximation of ore mined per hour (of pure mining) based on your levels and gear see the mining rate calculator. You can see the differences in this table:

Mining Level Pickaxe Total time per run (sec) Ore (hour) Profit (hour) Experience (hour)

10 Iron Pickaxe 200 578 350,561 7400
