Tin ore detail.png

Tin ore is an ore used to create the metal alloy bronze. Tin ore, along with copper ore, is the first ore a player can mine through the Mining skill, and the rocks it is mined from are found at various mines. One of the best tin mining sites is the south-west Varrock mining site, as it is near a bank and the Grand Exchange.

With a Divination level of at least 17, 3 copper ore or tin ore may be transmuted into 1 iron ore. This costs 2 flickering energy and yields 3.7 Divination experience.

A player can smelt tin ore into a bronze bar through the Smithing skill by using it on a furnace along with a copper ore, granting 1 Smithing experience.
