Tin ore detail

Tin ore is an ore used to create the metal alloy bronze. Tin ore, along with copper ore, is the first ore a player can mine through the Mining skill, and the rocks it is mined from are found at various mines. One of the best tin mining sites is the south-east Varrock mining site, as it is near a bank and the Grand Exchange. Mining a tin rock grants 17.5 Mining experience for each ore mined.

With a Divination level of at least 17, 3 copper ore or tin ore may be transmuted into 1 iron ore. This costs 2 flickering energy and yields 3.7 Divination experience.

A player can smelt tin ore into a bronze bar through the Smithing skill by using it on a furnace along with a copper ore, granting 6.2 Smithing experience.

Power training Mining (P2P)Edit

For members, it is not really known that players can power level the Mining skill with tin ore in the Port Khazard mining site. This is because of two fast respawning tin rocks that are very close to a bank deposit box. These two tin rocks are the closest mining rocks to a fast bank source. This method is faster than dropping ore and the Living Rock Caverns.
