- This page is about the item. For more information about ore, see Ore (disambiguation)
An ore is an item (usually a type of unrefined metal) that can be mined from rocks or mineral veins using the Mining skill and a Pickaxe. Items such as gems, clay, granite, and essences are not ores per se, however they are still discussed on this page as they can be obtained via Mining. Metal ores can be smelt into bars using the Smithing skill.

Uses of oresEdit
See Ore (disambiguation) for a list of ores and items often referred to as ores. The use of ores are elaborated at their own articles.
- Strangely, while mining things like Limestone, and you get an additional limestone from your Varrock armour, it says: "The Varrock Armour allows you to mine an additional ore", although this isn't actually an ore.
- The heaviest ore is Lunar ore, and the heaviest minable item is 10kg Sandstone. Most metal ores are around 2kg (1.75kg to 2.7kg)
- Rocks containing ore were updated on 20 December 2011, as revealed in the update post on that day, to have a shiny look when ore is available from them.
