Iron ore detail.png

Iron ore can be mined at level 15 Mining providing 35 Mining experience. After an iron rock is mined, it will respawn in 5.4 seconds. Iron ore is used to smelt iron bars and can be smelted with coal to make steel bars. Smelting iron ore into iron bars has a 50% success rate, unless the player is wearing a ring of forging, using superheat item, or using the blast furnace. Smelting iron ore into a bar gives 12.5 Smithing experience, smelting a steel bar gives 17.5 Smithing. Iron rocks that are in a triangle shape can be mined without moving if the player stands in the centre of them. This is called power mining.
