A Coal rock is a rock that contains coal. Players with a Mining level of 30 can mine coal rocks with a pickaxe, granting 50 Mining experience. Coal rocks can be found in numerous mines throughout RuneScape, most abundantly in the Mining Guild.

On rare occasions the rock may give an uncut sapphire, emerald, ruby or diamond.

Coal is used in combination with ores such as iron, mithril, adamantite and runite to smelt bars in a furnace to create armour and weapons with Smithing.

One of the best ways to mine coal is to use skills necklace teleport to mining guild, and bank using either the TokKul-Zo or the Ring Of Duelling. Having a coal bag from dungeoneering rewards will hold 81 coal for you making your trips longer.

Respawn rateEdit

Currently coal rocks respawn in 45 seconds.

Coal, like all other mined rocks, used to respawn at a rate indirectly proportional to the number of people in the rock's RuneScape world before the update on 13 March 2017. If the world was empty, the ore respawned in 1 minute; if it was full (with 2000 players), it respawned in 30 seconds. Thus the respawn rate of coal was

60(1-\frac{x}{4000}) seconds,

where x is the number of players in the world.

A table of the historical respawn rates is given below.

Players 0 200 400 600 800 1000 1200 1400 1600 1800 2000
Respawn time 1:00 0:57 0:54 0:51 0:48 0:45 0:42 0:39 0:36 0:33 0:30
