The profit rate assumes 320 shades cremated (and their keys opened) per hour. Your actual profit may be higher or lower depending on your speed and luck.

Cremating urium remains, collecting the keys and opening the Gold Chests in the Shade Catacombs gives on average one elite clue every 35 minutes, in addition to other standard loot (mostly coins and alchables). It also gives a decent amount of Firemaking and Prayer experience, and chances at the Zealot's robes, which are useful for training Prayer.

For free transportation, Morytania legs 3 or better is the best way to get to Mort'ton regularly. Mort'ton teleports are also an option, but at 21,816 each they are fairly expensive and will reduce the hourly profit by a lot, for only 20 or so seconds saved per trip.

To cremate the shades, fill up the gold coffin with 28 urium remains and fill the rest of the inventory with redwood pyre logs and a tinderbox. Use the logs and remains on the pyre and light it, collecting the reward (either coins or a gold key) from the pedestal. You can stack up multiple rewards on the pedestal to save time, but coins will disappear after 30 seconds, and keys will disappear after 2 minutes. Tick manipulation methods can be used to slightly increase the speed the shades are cremated, up to around 400 cremations + loots per hour, or 600 cremations without chests.

You can either bank the keys or go open chests directly from there. They are about the same overall speed, although saving up keys can lead to more efficient chest opening because you won't have to switch chest types as often.

Either way, enter the Shade Catacombs, go through the gold door, and start opening chests. Each loot will give coins, swamp paste, and one other item – none of them are incredibly valuable (besides the elite clue), but they all add up to make each chest well over 10,000 on average.
