The Mining cape is the Cape of Accomplishment for the Mining skill. It can be purchased for 99,000 coins alongside the Mining hood from a dwarf at the Mining Guild entrance by players who have achieved level 99 Mining. Mining capes are brown-greyish in colour, have the mining skill icon, and have a light blue trim if the player has more than one level 99 skill.

Mining cape equipped (Dwarf)
  • Currently, 86,909 people are able to own this cape (as seen on the highscores).
  • When first released it was possible for a player to buy a Mining cape even if they did not have 99 Mining. Although it is said that the players with the Mining capes below 99 have them removed, this is not true as a couple of accounts still have them. However, you cannot equip them, and trying to will give you the message "You need level 99 Mining to equip this item."
  • The number of players who have achieved 99 mining has increased significantly since the release of the Living Rock Caverns as concentrated gold rocks and concentrated coal rocks have allowed for Mining to be done without paying much attention to the game, as opposed to before the release of the Living Rock Caverns where granite was the best experience per hour (this required constant attention).
  • On 25 May 2010 the Mining cape's emote was changed; the animation is smoother and the pickaxe used has been changed from steel to rune.
  • The golden shadow of the pickaxe resembles the inferno adze at the top of the down swing.
  • The dwarf selling the cape used to wear an unique version of it.
