Runite ore can be somewhat profitable to mine since it is used to make rune equipment and Elder rune bars.
If mining in Prifddinas then you can use a Rune ore box to make more money at the cost of requiring more interaction and slight lower ore per hour.

Runite ore can be somewhat profitable to mine since it is used to make rune equipment and elder rune bars. There's a few places you can mine runite ore but one of the best is in the Dwarven mines right beneath Falador. It's recommended to bring a rune ore box as this will make the bank trips fewer. It takes 40 seconds to run and bank the ore and the run back to start mining. You can either bank at the Falador bank located in the centre of Falador or you can go down the mysterious entrance by the luminite rocks and deposit your items there. Both takes about the same time. For a close approximation of ore mined per hour (of pure mining) based on your levels and gear see the mining rate calculator. Here's a table of estimated profit and experience gained depending on your mining level:
