Silver ore detail

Silver ore is a type of ore that can be obtained through the Mining skill in various places throughout RuneScape; requiring level 20 Mining, and granting 40 Mining experience.

With level 22 Divination, 3 iron ore may be transmuted into a silver ore. This costs 2 bright energy and yields 5.2 Divination experience; a net loss of -1,114 coins.

After mining a silver rock, the ore can be smelted to produce a silver bar, granting the player 13.7 Smithing experience. Silver bars can be used to craft various types of jewellery through the Crafting skill. Silver ore is popular on the Free-to-play servers, as it can be crafted into Tiaras for Crafting experience.

Noted ores can occasionally be found inside barrels in the Viyeldi Caves.

Mine locationsEdit

One of the best locations to mine silver ore is in the Crafting Guild, found just south-west of Falador, requiring a level 40 Crafting to enter. Players who have completed the Hard Falador Tasks may access a bank deposit box inside to guild to quickly bank their mined ores. A nearby bank chest can be found at the Clan Camp.

Alternatively, three silver rocks are found within the Dwarven Mine hidden mine, requiring level 15 Dungeoneering to enter. A bank deposit box can be found inside, making this a quick ways to mine and bank silver.

Respawn rateEdit

Silver ore, like all other mined rocks, respawns at a rate 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 silver 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

It is worthwhile to note that silver ore has the same respawn rate as gold ore, although gold ore requires a higher Mining level.
