  1. Hey everyone ! Welcome to my Normal Mode Mining guide ! Hope this becomes a reference for the future and helps out players training Mining. Tools Needed 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: Bronze Pickaxe: Level 1 Iron Pickaxe: Level 1 Steel Pickaxe: Level 6 Mithril Pickaxe: Level 21 Adamant Pickaxe: Level 31 Rune Pickaxe: Level 41 Dragon Pickaxe: Level 61 ** 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 ** Ores Tin/Copper/Clay ---> Level 1 Iron Ore ---> Level 15 Silver Ore ---> Level 20 Coal ---> Level 30 Gold ---> Level 40 Gem Rocks ---> Level 40 Mithril Ore ---> Level 55 Adamantite Ore ---> Level 70 Runite Ore ---> Level 85 Outfit 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: Mining Task I ---> Mine 1000 rocks Prospector Boots: Mining Task I ---> Mine 1000 rocks Prospector Legs: Intermediate Miner ---> Mine 2500 rocks 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 Rocks location You can find all the lowest and medium rocks at ::home, south west of the center fountain. At this place you'll find: 1 Bronze pickaxe 2 Tin Rocks 3 Copper Rocks 3 Clay Rocks 3 Iron Rocks 1 Silver Rocks 4 Coal 4 Gold Rocks Experience Table (Take in consideration I'm first tier Donator so you'll get a bit less experience if you ain't a donor) Bonus weekend XP with be entered between ( ). Tin, Copper and Clay are all the same XP: Regular XP: 900 (1,800) 1 Prospector Piece: 1,013 (2,026) 2 Prospector Pieces: 1,141 (2,282) 3 Prospector Pieces: 1,285 (2,570) Full Prospector Outfit: 1,447 (2,894) Iron Ore: Regular XP: 1,750 (3,500) 1 Prospector Piece: 1,970 (3,940) 2 Prospector Pieces: 2,219 (4,438) 3 Prospector Pieces: 2,499 (4,998) Full Prospector Outfit: 2,814 (5,628) Silver Ore: Regular XP: 2,000 (4,000) 1 Prospector Piece: 2,252 (4,504) 2 Prospector Pieces: 2,536 (5,072) 3 Prospector Pieces: 2,856 (5,712) Full Prospector Outfit: 3,216 (6,432) Coal: Regular XP: 2,500 (5,000) 1 Prospector Piece: 2,815 (5,630) 2 Prospector Pieces: 3,170 (6,340) 3 Prospector Pieces: 3,570 (7,140) Full Prospector Outfit: 4,021 (8,042) Gold Ore: Regular XP: 3,250 (6,500) 1 Prospector Piece: 3,660 (7,320) 2 Prospector Pieces: 4,121 (8,242) 3 Prospector Pieces: 4,641 (9,282) Full Prospector Outfit: 5,227 (10,454) Gem Rock: Regular XP: 3,000 (6,000) 1 Prospector Piece: 3,378 (6,756) 2 Prospector Pieces: 3,804 (7,608) 3 Prospector Pieces: 4,284 (8,568) Full Prospector Outfit: 4,825 (9,650) Mithril Ore: Regular XP: 4,000 (8,000) 1 Prospector Piece: 4,504 (9,008) 2 Prospector Pieces: 5,072 (10,144) 3 Prospector Pieces: 5,712 (11,424) Full Prospector Outfit: 6,433 (12,866) Adamantite Ore: Regular XP: 4,750 (9,500) 1 Prospector Piece: 5,349 (10,698) 2 Prospector Pieces: 6,024 (12,048) 3 Prospector Pieces: 6,784 (13,568) Full Prospector Outfit: 7,640 (15,280) Runite Ore: Regular XP: 6,250 (12,500) 1 Prospector Piece: 7,038 (14,076) 2 Prospector Pieces: 7,791 (15,582) 3 Prospector Pieces: 8,926 (17,852) Full Prospector Outfit: 10,502 (20,104) Gem Rocks 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. Mining Cape Perk 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.
