This article is about areas containing rocks. For the skill, see Mining.

Mines and mining sites are areas where ores for Mining can be found. These may be above ground (sites) or under ground (mines) and are scattered in fair number around Gielinor. Some of these locations are accessible only after certain quests are complete, some are members only.

Standard mines

The table below lists the mines that contain any of the 'standard' ore rocks: clay, copper, tin, iron, silver, coal, gold, mithril, adamantite, and runite. See 'Other mines' below for mines that contain other types of mineable rocks.
