A Mining urn can be created at 32 Crafting, and is used with the Mining skill to help with gaining experience. The urn is filled when the player has earned 1,625 Mining xp with the urn in inventory. Once the mining urn is full, it can be teleported to Ernie for 325 Mining experience. An Earth Rune needs to be attached to it in order to activate and use it.
Mining a Shooting Star does not fill the urn. Neither does mining in the living rock cavern; however, a decorated mining urn will work. If mining multiple ores at once, using either Varrock armour or the reward effect of a Shooting Star, the urn only fills with xp from the first ore. The others do not count. Additionally, the mining urn cannot be used at a mining plot inside the Clan Citadel or on divine tear rocks in the Battle of Lumbridge.
When a higher level mining urn is present in a player's inventory, a normal mining urn will take priority in filling, meaning that any level 40 or lower ore that is mined will fill the normal urn rather than the higher levelled urn. However, any ore requiring higher than 40 mining will fill the higher tiered urn. This lower tier priority also applies to cracked, fragile, and strong mining urns.

- If the urn is exactly 50% full, checking its level will result in the message: "The [Type of Urn] is half full, or is it half empty?"
