Tin ore rocks contain tin ore that can be mined with a pickaxe. It can be mined with a Mining level of at least 1. 1 tin ore and 1 copper ore can be smelted into a bronze bar.

## Respawn rateEdit

Currently tin rocks respawn in 3 seconds.

Tin rock, like all other mined rocks, used to respawn at a rate indirectly proportional to the number of people in the rock's RuneScape world before the update on 13 March 2017. If the world was empty, the ore respawned in 4 seconds; if it was full (with 2000 players), it respawned in 2 seconds. Thus the respawn rate of copper ore was

$4-\frac{x}{1000}$ seconds,

where x is the number of players in the world.

A table of the historical respawn rates is given below.

Players 0 200 400 600 800 1000 1200 1400 1600 1800 2000
Respawn time 4.0 s 3.8 s 3.6 s 3.4 s 3.2 s 3.0 s 2.8 s 2.6 s 2.4 s 2.2 s 2.0 s

Tin ore has the same respawn rate as copper ore.
