|Level 15||Mine iron ore in the Dwarven mine just outside of the Hidden Resource Dungeon. Three iron rocks are located very close to the Resource Dungeon entrance, which houses a deposit box and allows for extremely fast banking.

|Level 20||Silver ore sells for 101 coins each, and is found in the Crafting guild, West Varrock Mine and Al Kharid mine. Silver ore rocks only respawn every 2 minutes, So mining other ores is recommended.|
Recommended: 15 Dungeoneering
|Coal sells for 192 coins each. Players can use the coal trucks west of Seers' Village for more efficient mining. At the coal trucks your profit will be higher. The Seer's headband will increase the amount Stankers will allow in the coal trucks. Players with 15 Dungeoneering can mine coal in the hidden resource dungeon located in the dwarven mine which contains more coal rocks than at seer village. There is a bank deposit box near the entrance of the mine, which means that there is no need to go to a bank.|

A nearby Dwarven boatman, east of the mine entrance, banks the player's gold ore for a charge of 20% of the gold ores, rounded up.|
|Level 40||Mining gem rocks in Shilo Village can be very crowded but players can still make a lot of money. You can get lesser valued gems like uncut opals but you can also mine uncut emeralds, rubies, and diamonds which sell for 3,129, 3,288 and 6,912 coins respectively. Another option for players with 75 Dungeoneering is the use the Al Kharid resource dungeon, this area is usually less crowded. A Gem bag from Dungeoneering (with 25 Dungeoneering, 25 crafting), allowing storage of up to 100 gems from Sapphires to Diamonds. The far more common semi-precious gems can be cut and then crafted into bolt tips using a chisel for some fletching and crafting experience, but you will lose money. Banking all gems may earn more money depending on the time spent.|

Using a Coal bag is also recommended.|

|Level 77||Mining concentrated coal in the Living Rock Caverns is one of the best ways to make money while mining. World 84 has a network of players mining, fishing, and killing rock monsters, so you're less likely to be attacked by monsters.
|Level 80||Mine concentrated gold in the Living Rock Caverns. World 84 has a network of players mining, fishing, and killing rock monsters, so you're less likely to be attacked by monsters.
|Level 85||Mining Runite ore can be profitable as is the most expensive ore in the game selling for 10,599 coins each. You can mine runite at the Heroes' Guild, at the single runite rock on the Fremennik Isles, or in the Lava Maze, although this location is very dangerous. Most players who mine runite tend to switch worlds rather than wait for the ore to respawn. The amount of time world hopping and waiting decreases the profit per hour. Another effective method of mining runite is using the superior locator, a reward from Mobilising Armies to teleport you to runite rocks. Beware that you can be teleported to the wilderness. After the release of the Dwarven resource dungeon, it is possible to mine Runite ore quite safely in the Mining guild resource dungeon(Requires 45 Dungeoneering for access.) There is also a convenient bank deposit box close by. Profit was estimated from mining rune in wilderness without being attacked.
