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 -1,261 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, requiring a crafting level of 40, which is just southwest of Falador. You no longer need a brown apron to enter. The closest bank is the Clan Camp bank chest, a short distance east of the crafting guild.

Players can also mine silver in the Al-Kharid mining site; beware of scorpions if below combat level 29. A nearby bank can be found in Al-Kharid, as well as the Duel Arena.

There are three silver rocks in the Dwarven Mine hidden mine, requiring level 15 Dungeoneering to enter. A deposit box can be found inside, making this one of the quickest ways to mine and bank silver.

Another silver location is in the Dorgeshuun mine, located near the basement of the Lumbridge Castle. The mine is accessed through a crack in the wall, in the basement. The Lost Tribe quest must be completed to access this mine.

Three silver rocks can be found at the South-west Varrock mine.

A fairly unknown silver mine is the Senntisten Temple; unlocked during the Dig Site quest.

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.
