Ash piles can be found throughout the Fossil Island Volcano, and can be mined with level 22 Mining, granting 10 experience. When mined, they can produce soda ash and volcanic ash.

Unlike other ore rocks, ash piles can be mined several times before being depleted. Ash piles have a 1/4 chance of being depleted when they are mined. After being mined, ash piles take around 30 seconds to respawn.[1]

Players cannot receive unidentified fossils from mining ash piles. However, they can still receive gems, clue geodes and the rock golem.

Pre roll drops[edit | edit source]

A gem table rolls before the main drop table.[2] There's a chance to receive nothing here so that players can receive no items from a rock even if they are guaranteed to receive ash in the main drop table.[3] The table gets more likely to be rolled if the player has an amulet of glory equipped: the probability grows from 1/256 to 1/86.[4]

Yield[edit | edit source]

The amount of ash obtained is scaled to the player's Mining level, starting with one ash at level 22 and increasing by one for every 15 levels above 22, to a maximum of six ash at 97 (boosts can be used). Mining enhancers do not affect the yield when mining volcanic ash.[6]
