The Rimmington mine is a mine that is located north-east of Rimmington, west of Port Sarim and south-west of Falador. It has no aggressive monsters.
A spade respawns in the centre of the mine.
It's one of the two mine with gold rocks for free-to-play without additional requirements, the other being the Al Kharid mine, which is further from a bank. Crafting Guild is better but requires 40 Crafting. It is also one of the two mines in free-to-play worlds with adamantite rocks, the other being Varrock South-East Mine, which is also further from a bank.
The fastest banking option is the locker in the Rimmington Customs Office, accessible to members that have completed Rocking Out. Any player can use its right-click Deposit-All option to deposit everything in their inventory to their bank, but since this would also bank your ore box, it is counterproductive. However, since free players cannot hold gold ore in ore boxes anyway, this is viable for gold mining.
There is a bank in the Clan Camp (not required to be in a clan) to the north and slightly east. There is also a forge and anvil that allows access to metal bank in Port Sarim to the east, with a furnace inside the house. These two are slightly further but offer more options. At near the minimum level and an adamant pickaxe + 2, one trip of 146 adamantite ores (with 2 spaces for the ore box and sedimentary geodes) takes about 24 minutes, or about 365 ores per hour. It is not recommended to mine them for money however due to their low value.
This mining site is also visited during the Animal Magnetism quest to make a Bar magnet.
The cart in the center can be used as a Treasure Trail hidey-hole.

- A mining rock in the Rimmington Mine has been renamed "Clay rock" to reflect what ore it contains.
