Inside the Mining Guild.

Being able to mine adamantite ore, which is a high-level ore that frequently sells for a high price (1,130 coins) due to its use in producing adamantite bars via Smithing, is no easy feat. The safest area for non-members to mine adamantite ore is in the Mining guild, where two spawns of the adamantite rock can be found. World switching is recommended in order to speed up ore-gathering. Please note: there is no bank in the mining guild for non-members, but another one is relatively close, up the stairs in Eastern Falador.

However, there are several locations to mine adamantite, but the best place for both members and non-members to mine it is at Hobgoblin Mine, which contains eight adamantite rocks. Although it is directly north of Edgeville, it is also located in level 32-35 Wilderness and far from a bank, namely Edgeville. Since it is in the Wilderness, players should not take anything they are not prepared to lose. It's also suggested for players to have a Combat level above 70 and mine with caution at this mine since aggressive hobgoblins (regardless of Combat level) and the always-looming threat of a player killer are present. Furthermore, players should bring a few pieces of food and a Melee weapon in which the weapon is optional, but it could still help.

Additionally, players can take a waka canoe (requires 57 Woodcutting and an axe) to the Wilderness and run a bit south-west to reach the mine. After a full inventory, non-members have to run all the way south to the nearest bank, which is located in Edgeville. Thus, the mining guild method is preferred over the wilderness method.

Regardless, if players wish to avoid the hassles and dangers of the Wilderness, they can try the other mine locations and employ the world switching tactic if desired. Nonetheless, it takes between four to eight minutes for a rock to respawn depending on how long ago it was mined.
