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 iron ores and 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). For a close approximation of ore mined per hour (of pure mining) based on your levels and gear see the mining rate calculator. Below is a table of estimated profit per hour with different mining levels and pickaxes.

Mining Level Pickaxe Total time per run (sec) Ore (hour) Sedimentary geode (hour) Profit (hour) Experience (hour)
1 Bronze pickaxe 356 273 14 37,789 3000
10 Iron Pickaxe 103 941 47 130,086 10200
20 Steel Pickaxe 68 1444 72 199,663 15700
