Runite ore can be obtained through the Mining skill in various places throughout Old School RuneScape by mining a runite rock. It requires level 85 Mining and grants 125 Mining experience. The ore can be smelted with 8 coal through the Smithing skill to form a runite bar, which can then be smithed into various rune weapons and armour.

Runite ore is the most difficult ore to obtain as many of the rocks are located in the Wilderness or other risky locations, plus there's very few available rocks to mine from, and they have an exceptionally long respawn timer of 12 minutes (except for the Mining Guild's spawns, which feature a halved timer), prompting most players to switch worlds frequently while mining.

Another way of obtaining runite ore is through the Motherlode Mine. With a Mining level of 85 or higher, one can wash pay-dirt and have a small chance of receiving runite ore along with 75 experience. Also, this can be done at 82 Mining utilising the dragon pickaxe special. It is also possible to obtain runite ore at 75 Mining, but this only applies in blast mining, where you get a 10+ mining boost.
