Gold ore can be mined from concentrated gold deposits in the Living Rock Caverns. Concentrated gold deposits yield five gold ores at once unlike normal gold rocks. There are four concentrated gold rock spawns, but it is recommended to use the two southern spawns that are closest to the bank deposit which is located in the centre of the cavern.

Note that the gold ore obtained in the above example requires 4-ticking. Afk methods will produce around 3780 ore. See https://runescape.wiki/w/Calculator:Mining/Rate

It is recommended to use a lava titan, requiring 83 Summoning, to give an extra 10 mining damage to increase the speed at which the gold ore is mined. The golden mining suit gives a 5% increase to experience when worn, but it does not increase the rate that the gold ore is mined. A full decorated mining urn can be teleported for 625 mining experience, but it does not affect the rate of obtaining ore and it cannot be sold. For the purpose of money making, it is not recommended to use urns as they take up inventory space and provide no benefit to the amount of gold ore earned. For a close approximation of ore mined per hour (of pure mining) based on your levels and gear see the mining rate calculator.

Be sure to assign an action bar slot for your ore box, to avoid wasting extra time depositing ore.

Living rock creatures roam the cavern and will attack you while you are mining, unless you are wearing the magic golem outfit, which removes their aggression. World 83 is the official Living Rock Caverns world; the unofficial worlds are 77, 88, and 96. Hiding behind rocks or wearing the Magic golem outfit is recommended to avoid taking damage.

Gold stone spirits will double the gold ore mined, thus increasing profits, even when taking into account the cost of the stone spirits. Signs of the porter can be used to send ore to the metal bank; only one charge will be used to send all five mined ores to the bank, making this very effective for long trips. Perfect juju mining potion has a 10% chance of giving gold stone spirits for every mining action, and restores mining stamina upon using a gold stone spirit. This helps gain back some of the cost of the stone spirits, while also restoring mining stamina and allowing the player to click less often to maintain good rates. Players should still buy gold stone spirits in advance to ensure that they don't run out.

Using an augmented tool with the Honed perk can further increase yield while costing tool charges. It yields up to 40 extra Gold ore per hour per rank, up to 240 at rank 6, if the success chance is less than or equal 90% per mining tick.

Depositing the ore

Once your inventory and your ore box is full, you'll need to access the anvil in the ground floor[UK]1st floor[US] of the Dwarven Mine. Fortunately, the anvil is located fairly close to the Living Rock Cavern entrance.
