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.

A player performing the mining cape's emote.

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 (with some exceptions), granting experience for both ores mined. This effect stacks with other mining enhancers.

This item can be stored in the cape rack of a costume room, as part of the Mining cape set, along with the hood. Ultimate Ironmen will be unable to retrieve individual pieces until the full set is stored.

As of 1 February 2023, there are 69,376 players that have achieved level 99 in Mining.
