Expert mining gloves detail.png

Expert mining gloves are a pair of gloves that combine mining gloves and superior mining gloves, requiring 70 Mining to wear. They can be obtained from Belona for a fee of 60 unidentified minerals, costing a total of 240. Depending on concentration, it takes approximately fourteen to sixteen hours of mining iron, the fastest method for acquiring unidentified minerals, to acquire the 240 total needed.

Upon dying above level 20 Wilderness, the gloves will be converted into 14 coins when dropped.

This item can be stored in the armour case of a costume room.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When mining certain rocks with the gloves equipped, there is a chance that the rock will not be depleted, and the player will continue mining the rock until it depletes. This effect stacks with other mining enhancers.

In the mining guild, each time the effect is triggered and the rock is mined again, the player has a chance to find unidentified minerals. This can result in multiple chances per rock before it depletes.

The rocks listed below are affected by the gloves' effect:

Rock Chance of
Silver 50%
Coal 40%
Gold 33.33%
Mithril 25%
Adamantite 16.66%
Runite 12.5%
Amethyst 25%
