Runite ore detail.png

Runite ore can be mined at level 85 Mining providing 125 Mining experience. After a runite rock is mined, it will take twelve minutes until it reappears. Runite ore is used with eight coal to smelt runite bars. Smelting a runite bar gives 50 Smithing experience.

Wearing either superior mining gloves or expert mining gloves while mining a runite rock grants a 12.5% chance for the rock to not deplete upon mining a runite ore, allowing you to mine an additional ore before depleting.

Ore chance[edit | edit source]

At 99 mining, runite ore has a 19/256 chance of depletion every 3 ticks (1.8 seconds), when using a rune pickaxe. The expected (average) amount of trials needed for a 1/n success is just n. In the case of a rune pickaxe, the expected amount of time for success is 256/19 * 3 ticks, roughly 24.25 seconds.

For the median time to success, consider that the chance of not getting the rock. x rolls is (237/256)^x. Solve for (237/256)^x = 0.5, you get x = 8.99 approximately. So median time (i.e. the time after which 50% of rocks would be mined) is 8.99 * 3 ticks, which is about 16.18 seconds.
