Tin ore is an ore that can be obtained through mining tin rocks, requiring level 1 Mining, in various places around RuneScape. Tin ore, along with copper ore, is one of the first ores a player can mine using the Mining skill.

Tin is required to craft bronze bars. As players increase their Mining level and use higher tier pickaxes, they are able to mine tin at quicker rates.

Tin, like other mining resources, can be stored in an ore box. 100 tin can be stored in a bronze ore box or higher. This capacity be increased by 20 at level 7 Mining and a further 20 with the completion of the Everything Is Oresome achievement.

Burthorpe mine is the best spot to mine tin as it is very close to a metal bank at the entrance, followed by the Ashdale mine.

Varrock South-West mine is also close to a bank (members only) at May's Quest Caravan once the bank chest is unlocked from the Hub track for a cumulative cost of 125 quest points.
