The above-ground Mining Guild entrance
The Mining Guild, located in and beneath Falador, is a guild for expert miners available to players with at least 60 Mining (can be boosted). The mine is accessible from either the Mining Guild's above-ground complex in the south-east of the city, or through the gate at the southern end of the Dwarven Mine. Both of these entrances are guarded by dwarves who will answer questions about the guild and stop players without the requirements from entering the guild.
The mine is one of nine in RuneScape where three iron rocks can be mined without moving, thus ideal for power levelling, with the other eight being the Resource Area, Legends' Guild mine, Al Kharid Mine, Piscatoris mine, Lovakengj mine, Verdant Valley on Fossil Island, Mount Karuulm mine, and Trahaearn mine.
The free-to-play area contains the following rocks:
In addition, there are two shops found in the centre: Yarsul's Prodigious Pickaxes, which sells pickaxes, and Hendor's Awesome Ores, which sells ores (with zero stock).
There is an exit to the east, which leads to the Motherlode Mine. As the Motherlode Mine is a members-only area, using this exit requires the player be on a members' world.
Inside the Mining Guild's members-only area.
Other than Old School RuneScape membership, there are no additional requirements to enter the members' area.
The members' area contains the following rocks:
There is also a bank chest, a bank deposit box, and a poll booth.
While inside this area of the guild, players will receive an invisible +7 level boost to their Mining. This boost stacks with other boosts the player may use, such as the visible +3 boost from the dragon pickaxe's special attack, but does not allow a player to perform actions above their base level. In addition, the respawn time for rocks mined in this area is halved.
This area is the only location in which players can mine amethyst crystals. Players can speak to Utrec to learn more about the mineral's uses.
Mining any of the rocks in this area gives a chance of receiving unidentified minerals. These can be traded in for mining gloves or superior mining gloves from Belona's shop, Mining Guild Mineral Exchange. If players do not want to receive them, they can be disabled by right-clicking "Toggle-minerals" on Belona.
When using an infernal pickaxe in the members area of the Mining Guild, the Smithing effect will NOT negate the ability to receive unidentified minerals upon its proc.
