Mining is a skill in RuneScape Classic that allows players to mine rocks and obtain various ores and minerals. Ores can then be smelted into bars and then smithed into armour and weapons.

For training this skill, see the Mining Training article.

Pickaxes Edit

Before attempting to mine a rock, a player must have a pickaxe. The higher the level the pickaxe, the better the chances of getting the ore.

Bronze, Iron, Steel, Mith, Addy and Rune Pickaxes can be bought from the Nurmof in the Dwarven Mine.

Pickaxe Level Bonus Price
Bronze pickaxe 1 1 500 Coins
Iron pickaxe 1 2 1000 coins
Steel pickaxe 1 4 2000 coins
Mithril pickaxe 1 6 3000 coins
Adamant pickaxe 1 9 5000 coins

Minerals Edit

Unlike modern RuneScape, attempting to mine a rock containing ore you do not have the mining level for does not warn you that you cannot mine it. You will instead receive the message "You only succeed in scratching the rock".

Gems Edit

While mining rocks for ores, players may randomly mine an uncut gem which include sapphires, emeralds, rubies and diamonds. Mining a gem through these rocks gives 1 mining experience. Mining gem rocks found in Shilo Village is a more efficient way to obtain uncut gems but can only be accessed after completing the Shilo Village quest. Mining a gem rock requires level 40 mining and gives 50 mining experience.

Uncut gems can be used in the crafting skill to create various pieces of jewelry.
