Gold (worth 167 coins), is used to craft jewellery and train Smithing. Although Motherlode Mine offers an array of ore based on Mining level, players can still gain some gold from the pay-dirt. Players who want strictly gold should focus on mining it at the Crafting Guild Mine or Arzinian Mine once all requirements are met.

Arzinian Mine requires completion of the Between a Rock quest and the gold helmet. Also, wearing a Ring of charos (a), which requires some progression in Garden of Tranquillity, reduces the Dwarven Boatman's bank fee to 10% from 20%.

The Crafting Guild requires 40 Crafting to enter. For members the added bonus is a bank chest after finishing the hard Falador Diary, or achieving 99 Crafting and wearing the Crafting Cape, which makes this mine the best choice overall. Free players banking at Falador East Bank can easily make 6 trips an hour. Though with a higher mining level and efficient play, that number could be increased to 9 or 10 trips per hour.

All in all, players can get 100-700 gold every hour based on levels and efficiency. Thus, the hourly profit margin ranges from 16,700 to 116,900.
