Mine locations

The Crafting Guild is the best place to mine gold ore for non-members, requiring 40 crafting to enter. It has 7 gold rocks, and completion of the Falador hard tasks grants access to a deposit box in the guild. Otherwise the bank chest in the nearby clan camp can be used. For non-members without 40 Crafting, gold ore can be time consuming to mine and bank. However, two rocks can be found in the Rimmington mining site with a Bank deposit box nearby, in the Rimmington Customs Office.

Members with 80 Mining should consider mining concentrated gold rocks in the Living Rock Caverns. However, aggressive, high level (92+) living rock creatures may attack players. It is advisable to wear armour within the caverns. Alternatively, a golem outfit or shark outfit can be worn, which makes the creatures non-aggressive. Farli's camp near the exit of the cave has a pulley lift that acts as a deposit box. The official world for mining concentrated gold is world 84.
