Mining tin ore can be done in several different places but one of the best is in the dwarven mines underneath Falador. The output is calculated having full stamina at all times. It should be noted that you will be getting sedimentary geodes while mining. The geodes can later be opened to retrieve spirit shards and different gems. The player should use the best pickaxe possible as it will grant more ores per hour (up to steel pickaxe). Here you find a table over estimated profit per hour with different mining levels and pickaxes. For a close approximation of ore mined per hour (of pure mining) based on your levels and gear see the mining rate calculator.

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