"Tin" redirects here. For the rock that tin ore is mined from, see tin rock
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.
