|15+ (41+ strongly recommended for Rune pickaxe), 65+ strongly recommended|
|560 × Iron ore (45,360)|
Iron ore is an ore always in demand, due to its use in producing iron and steel bars via Smithing. There are many locations to mine iron ore, but the best non Members location to mine it is in the Dwarven Mine, which can be accessed from a building northeast of Falador.
Players are recommended to have Combat level over 65 to prevent the King scorpions and normal scorpions from being aggresive.
Players can also find uncut gems while mining, which can increase profit. A gem is obtained at around 1/282 chance when mining a rock.
It is strongly recommended to check the live prices on the Grand Exchange before making large investments in any method.
