Untitled[edit source]

I'm curious how mining granite and sandstone for training only works at high levels, when you can mine granite when you are level 45 and sandstone when you are only 35. Wrathanet 21:33, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

I think it's because, at those levels, mining sandstone and granite would be very slow, providing very slow experience. Butterman62 (talk) 21:36, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

further, the higher level you are, the greater amount of heavier granite and sandstone you recieve, although that is a secondary cause, the primary being that of speed. It is like iron is inefficient for fast exp before you start "one hitting" iron regularly. --Tortilliachp 04:44, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Living Rock caverns[edit source]

first impressions are that gold mining here is very good xp and decent money, I got around 40k xp per hour with a rune pick at 85 mining, can anyone confirm the xp rate? 19:23, September 18, 2009 (UTC)

values of 40-65k xp per hour were the claimed values given to me on world 84 while mining there, depending on mining level, use of familiar and use of the dragon pickaxe or not. --Tortilliachp 04:44, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

What happened to the mining for exp section?[edit source]

I see nothing about crossmining granite/sandstone anymore, and it now says gold is the best exp past 75. Not concentrated veins mind you, but just plain gold. This is wildly inaccurate information.

I'd rehaul it, but I don't have recent figures on the exp rates for concentrated veins at lower levels (80 to ~90) so I'm not sure when it would be beneficial to switch to them, from iron/quarry mining. If someone happens to know this, it'd be extremely helpful.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 04:11, December 25, 2009 (UTC).

Mouse Keys[edit source]

Under the 65-80 "Mining for Experience" heading it says "Power mining Granite at the Granite Quarry results in fast experience per hour ranging up to 60k per hour with Mouse keys, and to as low as 40k per hour dropping Granite."

This gives no explanation as to what Mouse Keys are, or how they benefit you. I know what mouse keys are myself, but I don't see how they can help me to get faster experience. Could anyone who knows what this technique is, add it please? 12:34, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

mouse keys are commenly used by alchers check the alchemy guide96.231.217.114 21:33, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

It's basically a way to train a skill AFK, (which would be against Jagex rules), but can also be used to save yourself from mouse-clicking and repetitive motion damage, even if you're right there at the keyboard. That it may actually be faster XP than using the mouse is a bonus. -- 15:58, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Mouse keys are allowed, according to Mod Ac. --Iiii I I I 16:00, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

That section alone seems to be inaccurate or based on level 80. At level 69, I can only get an average of 565 exp a minute, which is ~34k an hour. Dsctatom 06:30, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

Is it even still possible to use moues keys now that there is a craft option on right click? Vajazle 08/04/2012

Not For Sale -- Addy Ore[edit source]

The "Current prices" section is missing Addy ore, and might be nice to include. -- 16:02, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Penance Horn + Varrock armour[edit source]

I just tryed it and you realy get double xp for both rocks, mined by the special effect of the varrock armour. F.ex I got 380xp from 1 addy rock, and 200xp from 1 coal rock (when mined 2 rocks at once, while wilding the penance master horn). Regards - Col

use skill necklace to craft guild[edit source]

That's it really.

Use the skill necklaces to teleport to the Crafting guild. They are faster and less fiddly than balloon travel *remember yr brown apron! Use duel ring for baking at Moblising Armies as usual.

Skill necklaces teles to cook guild (close to varrock, ge ), fish guild (close to farm patch ) craft guild and mining guild ( close-ish ) to Falador east bank.

Skill necklaces are a truly useful thing!


[[this info should be added to the part about mining in craft guild please]

Gem Mining?[edit source]

Some of my clanmates think Gem mining, especially in the resource dungeon, is faster and more profitable than gold mining. There is zero information on this page about gem mining which can be really useful for people cross training skills as well. Might be helpful to add a section on it. 05:24, April 28, 2012 (UTC)Preliatornex

Another way to train and bank without banking[edit source]

Another method that is rather profitable for mining to allow more to be banked between trips is to mine using Signs of the Porter.  Porter I, II and III all use necklaces that are cheaper than what 5, 10 and 15 ore would sell for, respectively.  I haven't checked prices if you buy the energy, as well, but that's the easiest bit to obtain, and you'll have plenty left over from leveling Divination to the levels where you can use the Porters.  I make several of them, equip one, and start mining.  When an ore hits my bag, instead of porting off, I equip the next one, and keep going like this.  Starting with a full bag of Porter III, you can get 463 ores before you have to stop and bank (15 for the sign equipped, starting to cycle through them when you get the "no bag space" message, 28 * 15 for a full inventory of Porter III, and 28 more ore when your Porters are all used up and replaced with a bag full of ore).  This is profitable for iron and above.  I don't see it being used with tin or copper.  I also haven't checked prices for the materials for higher level Signs than the Porter III, but I'd imagine that, with the 5 item increase per tier, and Iron/Coal, as the cheapest ore I'd use sitting at 300+ gp, that's an additional 1,500 gp per tier to account for more expensive necklaces. 11:54, February 21, 2014 (UTC)

Mining for Gold[edit source]

I don't understand why mining gold from lv 40 onwards is even mentioned since something like Iron is

a) faster to mine per ore

b) worth more gp per ore

c) easier to bank 13:06, November 17, 2014 (UTC)

More information needed[edit source]

  • Adjust xp rates for level 75+ to use crystal pickaxe (xp rates with level 99 Mining are correct)
  • Information about playing Barbarian Assault for bonus experience
  • More xp rates for Lava Flow Mine
  • Xp rate for seren stones at level 89
  • Xp rate for mining concentrated gold at level 89

Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 16:13, May 15, 2015 (UTC)

Added information about mining granite using crystallise. At level 99 - 94,827xp/30m using crystallise and light form = 169,654/hr. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 15:26, September 11, 2015 (UTC)

Mining Daeyalt Ore[edit source]

Hey everyone, I was doing some Morytania quests (Darkness of Hallowvale) and noticed that, with the mining rework, Daeyalt ore might be a good and afk way to level. The ore stacks (no need for banking) and doesn't generate any geodes and things like that, so your inventory never gets full (only needing to click the game every 5 minutes so that you don't get disconnected). From a quick test (not enough for a good estimate), I'm getting around 50k-60k xp/hour. The quest only requires 20 mining so this would be one of the best methods until Runite/Orichalcite (level 50-60). The only downside is that you can't do much with the ore (only high-alch for 60 gold). Thoughts? VCent (talk) 05:41, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

Sounds like it could be worth adding! Could you test for longer and get an accurate xp rate? For comparison with the xp rates currently in the guide it should be base xp only (no xp boost items or bonus xp) :) Thanks! Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 08:47, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
Did some samples with different equipment (base xp only). On a 20 minute sample with a steel pickaxe I got a total of 16475 xp, which results in around 49.5 kxp/hour. This was done by just mining and clicking the currency pouch icon every 5 minutes so I don't get kicked. On a 10 minute sample with Orikalkum Pickaxe +3 I barely saw any difference (since Dayealt ore is not part of the Core); the result was 8783 xp (53 kxp/hour). The only difference was that I was clicking the ore instead of the currency pouch, regaining stamina. I'll add this info in the "Alternative methods of gaining experience".

add juju mining potion subsection to the useful equipment section?[edit source]  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 2:52, December 28, 2019 (UTC).

Mining animica[edit source]

On the money-making table, animica is mentioned three times with different numbers. One extra mention is semi-justified as it is during the Voice of Seren, but this might be able to be made into a single cell. The other one I have no idea (maybe difference between light and dark?). My mining knowledge isn't comprehensive so I'm not sure how to proceed. If someone fixes this, I also suggest lowercasing "animica" Anastasious (talk) 07:05, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Menaphos worker district mining site data[edit source]

The guide says that mining sandstone on the meanophos worker district can give you up to 150k xp/h. However, mine was much, much lower (less than 50k xp/h). Does this method depend on the mining level (due to having more chance to obtain the 10kg rocks)? Or maybe there is a specific quest/item that can boost the experience? Can someone check how much they're getting and report their mining level? I think it's important to update the info since, if the xp/h is truly 150k, it would be used from level 35 all to way to level 90 mining. VCent (talk) 20:10, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Just checked and I am getting 60k xp/h (99 mining without boosts), the xp rates are wrong, I will check this with all the boosts and come back on this later. Thanks for telling me! Guiiiaume (talk) 17:40, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
