A Mining cape can be purchased for 99,000 coins alongside the Mining hood from Gadrin at the Mining Guild entrance by players who have achieved level 99 Mining. It is the Cape of Accomplishment, also commonly called a skill cape, for the Mining skill. Mining capes are brown-greyish in colour, have the mining skill icon, and have a light blue trim if the player has more than one level 99 skill.

Like all skill capes, the Mining cape gives +9 to all defensive stats, and also a +4 bonus to prayer if it is trimmed, which requires a separate skill at level 99. The cape is automatically trimmed if this condition is met.

When the mining cape is equipped, there is a 5% chance of receiving an extra ore while mining ore up to adamantite. This effect stacks with those of the Varrock armour, Mining gloves, Superior mining gloves, and Expert mining gloves.

As of 1 July 2020, there are 29,985 current members that have achieved level 99 in Mining.
