Getting to the blast mine.

The Blast Mine is located in the northern section of Lovakengj, requiring 100% Lovakengj favour. At level 75 mining Blast Mining becomes a lucrative money making method, as it allows the player to accquire Runite Ore in addition to ores up to Adamantite. Players should expect to be able to use around 300 dynamite an hour, or more with higher concentration. See the Blast Mining page for effective strategies.

The following rates are based off of Jagex's estimated experience rates, based on the news article written on 14 January 2016.

At level 70:
48k xp per hour with 310k gp per hour.

At level 80:
58k xp per hour with 427k gp per hour.

It should be noted that this large increase in profit is a result of gaining access to runite ore at level 75 - 10 levels lower than normal, a perk of using the Blast Mine.

At level 90:
64.4k xp per hour with 587k gp per hour.

At level 99:
69.8k xp per hour with 693k gp per hour.
