Gold ore detail.png

Gold ore can be mined at level 40 Mining providing 65 Mining experience. After a gold rock is mined, it will take 60 seconds until it reappears. Gold ore is used to smelt gold bars. Smelting a gold bar gives 22.5 Smithing experience, or 56.2 with the goldsmith gauntlets equipped. The bar can then be crafted into various types of jewellery through the Crafting skill at a furnace, rather than an anvil like other bars. An anvil is used however to make a gold helmet or golden bowl for the quests Between a Rock... and Legends' Quest . Many items require a mould to create.

The chance to successfully mine gold ore scales linearly with the player's mining level. Were it possible to mine gold ore at level 1, players would have a 3% chance per mining cycle to successfully mine the ore. At level 99, players have a 29% chance to successfully mine the ore per mining cycle.[1]

Wearing either mining gloves or expert mining gloves while mining a gold rock grants a 33.33% chance for the rock to not deplete upon mining a gold ore, allowing you to mine an additional ore before depleting.
