Hey everyone !

Welcome to my Normal Mode Mining guide ! Hope this becomes a reference for the future and helps out players training Mining.

 

Dragon pickaxe.png Tools Needed Rune pickaxe.png: Inventory image of Rune pickaxe

To train Mining, you need a pickaxe. You can either pick up the bronze pickaxe beside the mining spot at home or you can purchase one at home in the north building, in the west wing. Trade the Shop Assistant. The pickaxe you can use depends on your Mining level. Here they are:

Iron pickaxe.png: Inventory image of Iron pickaxe Iron Pickaxe: Level 1 
Steel pickaxe.png: Inventory image of Steel pickaxe Steel Pickaxe: Level 6

** A Dragon pickaxe is obtainable as a drop from either Callisto, Chaos Elemental, Scorpia, Venenatis or tradeable from other players. **
** BEWARE THOSE BOSSES ARE IN THE WILDERNESS **

You can obtain the Prospector gear pieces when you complete different achievements. Each piece gives you some bonus experience when mining. Here are the achievements required to unlock each piece:

Prospector helmet.png Prospector Helmet: Mining Task I ---> Mine 1000 rocks
Prospector boots.png Prospector Boots: Mining Task I ---> Mine 1000 rocks
Prospector legs.png Prospector Legs: Intermediate Miner ---> Mine 2500 rocks
Prospector jacket.png Prospector Jacket: Expert Miner ---> Mine 5000 rocks

The bonus % works depending on how many pieces of gear you have and not which piece you have. For example, whether you wear the Prospector Jacket alone or the boots alone, it's still the same bonus. It differs by the amount of piece you wear;


1 piece = 12,6% bonus xp
2 pieces = 26,8% bonus xp
3 pieces = 42,8% bonus xp
4 pieces (Full set) = 60,8% bonus xp

Gem rocks can be found at "Lands End". To get there, open your magic spellbook, select "Skilling teleport" and select the first option on the right side. You'll find 3 Gem Rocks and a bank (deposit box) nearby. You can obtain uncut Jade, Opal, Sapphire, Emerald, Ruby and Diamond from them, which are excellent for crafting.


My Preferences

On my way to 99 Mining, I experienced different way to train up. Although, the best efficient way to train it imo is with Gem Rocks.

1-15 ---> Tin/Copper
15-40 Iron ores
40-99 Gem Rocks


Try to end up with the same amount of Tin and Copper ores in order to be able to make bronze bars without having leftover ores.
Mining Iron Ores from 15 to 40 allows you to rack up some iron ores used for Smithing later on. Iron ores are also very quick to mine and respawn fast aswell.
Mining Gems from 40 and up allows you to rack up a lot of gems. Those will play a huge role in your road to 99 crafting.

Once you  have achieved 99 Mining, go get your Mining Cape from the Wise Old Man at Home. When worn, that cape will earn you 2x ores per successful mining action. Works from tin and clay all the way to Runite ores.

 

HUGE THANKS to DanyMcDuff for the calculations of the Prospector Set % Bonuses.
 

I Hope it answers your question and help you achieve your mining goals ! Feel free to PM me ingame if you have any questions. Leave a comment if you think I forgot something or put wrong information. :)
