The Al Kharid mine (also called Scorpion mine) is a Mining area located just north of the desert city of Al Kharid.

The mine is advantageous because it is near a bank and a furnace and is located in a very low-risk location for its high-value infrequent rocks, such as gold, mithril, and adamantite. In addition, this mine is one of ten in RuneScape where three iron rocks can be mined without moving, thus ideal for power levelling, with the other nine being the Mining Guild, Legends' Guild mine, Piscatoris mine, Lovakengj mine, Verdant Valley on Fossil Island, Mount Karuulm mine, Trahaearn mine, Wilderness Resource Area, and Isle of Souls mine.

Monsters[edit | edit source]

This image depicts a method of safespotting the scorpions in the Al Kharid mine.
If here to power mine iron, the scorpions can be safespotted by angling one scorpion around the corner as shown here. This will also prevent any other scorpions from reaching you.

There are many level 14 scorpions in the Al Kharid mine. They are aggressive to players with a combat level of 28 or below, so low-levelled players should be careful.

Spawns[edit | edit source]

Two item spawns are located in the mine. The first one is four water runes and the second one is three fire runes.

NPCs[edit | edit source]

There is only one NPC located in the Al Kharid mine. He is called "Man" and cannot be attacked. During the Family Crest quest, his name is revealed to be Avan.

Agility shortcut[edit | edit source]

Members with 38 Agility can access (or exit) the Al Kharid mine via an Agility shortcut located on the northern part of the mine.
