Gold ore detail

Gold ore is a type of ore that can be obtained by mining gold ore rocks, requiring a Mining level of 40 or higher, and granting 65 experience. Gold ore can be smelted into gold bars through the Smithing skill, requiring level 40 Smithing. Gold bars can then be crafted to make various pieces of jewellery.

Mine locationsEdit

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, or equipment which makes the creatures unaggressive, such as a golem outfit or Shark outfit. 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.

Respawn rateEdit

Gold ore, like all other mined rocks, respawns at a rate inversely proportional to the number of people in the rock's RuneScape world. If the world is empty, the ore respawns in 2 minutes; if it is full (with 2000 players), it respawns in 1 minute. Thus the respawn rate of gold ore is

2-\frac{x}{2000} minutes,

where x is the number of players in the world.

A table of respawn rates is given below.

Players 0 200 400 600 800 1000 1200 1400 1600 1800 2000
Respawn time 2:00 1:54 1:48 1:42 1:36 1:30 1:24 1:18 1:12 1:06 1:00
