Resource dungeons (also known as surface dungeons) are dungeons initially released on 19 July 2010. Each dungeon requires a minimum Dungeoneering level to enter and contains different resources within, including new monster spawns (such as frost dragons), as well as ores, trees, and herb spawns. Boosts cannot be used to enter a dungeon if the player does not have the required Dungeoneering level.

Entering all but two (Braindeath Island 'Rum'-geon and Dragontooth Island) for the first time rewards the player with an amount of experience. Finding all currently released dungeons gives a total one-time experience reward of 282,600 experience, or 12,000 experience for non members-only dungeons. Note that while an experience bonus can be given for finding a dungeon, Dungeoneering tokens are not awarded to match the bonus.

Very resourceful is an achievement that requires the player to visit the listed resource dungeons.

A Dungeoneering cape or Hoardstalker ring may be used to quickly get to a resource dungeon.
