Saltwater mud is a type of soil that is found while excavating at the Everlight Dig Site which requires level 42 Archaeology to train at.

It can be screened at 42 Archaeology to obtain materials and rarely artefacts from it at the screening station at the Archaeology Campus. Screening saltwater mud yields 3 experience each from level 42 to 70, which increases to 5 experience each from level 71 to 92, 12 experience each from level 93 to 110 and 20 experience each from level 111 to 120.

Loot[edit | edit source]

The items below can only be obtained if the player has the required Archaeology level for them. The average value of each successfully obtained material at level 105 or above is 3,734; the average value from each soil is lower, however, as materials are not obtained from every soil screened.

Materials[edit | edit source]

  1. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l Only on successfully obtaining a material. The chance changes with the player's Archaeology level. Value here is approximation at level 120 Archaeology.

Artefacts[edit | edit source]

A specific artefact will only be received with an Archaeology level equal to or higher than the artefact restoration level. There is a 1/1,000 chance to obtain any artefact while screening soil.[1] As there are 31 possible artefacts, the chance of obtaining a specific artefact is 1/31,000 when all level requirements are met.

    • Using soils from the Archaeology skill on one another no longer opens a Herblore UI.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Screening the saltwater mud below level 38 Archaeology yields 1 experience, but since level 42 is required to screen it, this rate can never be used.
