Gem drops[edit source]

The Ore Veins apparently drop gems too. I just got a sapphire by mining one at mining lvl 41. -Vyctor 00:27, October 22, 2014 (UTC)

And a ruby as well. So it looks like this behaves like any other rock. -Vyctor 00:30, October 22, 2014 (UTC)
And diamonds as well. I got this ratio 32 sapphires, 12 emeralds, 5 rubies and 1 diamond. 18:21, June 5, 2016 (UTC)

Experience rates[edit source]

The experience rates are way lower in my experience, at least at earlier levels. 31 shows 22k but gave me about 15.5k (adamant pickaxe). This is measured over 2 hours with unloading. Not optimally efficient, but I can't imagine being off 6.5k. Will update when I train more. --2001:1C00:1001:B700:3162:4986:6E6E:8506 08:41, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

At 41 I earn 21k xp/hr, with the rune pick this time. Are the xp rates perhaps with the agility shortcut? --2001:1C00:1001:B700:3162:4986:6E6E:8506 09:58, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
I hit 98 recently and I only just started hitting 42K/H and I'm barely AFKing, the 43K/H at 85 and 52K/H at 99 rates are absolute bullshit. Where did these numbers come from? 19:41, 20 April 2020 (UTC)
It could possibly be incorrect, but just to be sure, are you using full prospector on the top floor with the Falador elite diary completed? Depositing 161 paydirt, followed by a full load afterwards to get >185 in the sack before you start unloading? Which pickaxe are you using? Either way, that table should be edited to reflect what goes into those rates.Choppe|T 20:22, 20 April 2020 (UTC)

Ore depletion[edit source]

I've observed ores in the upper levels depleted in exactly one successful swing, way below the suggested time, even if it's been untouched since respawning. Anecdotally, this seems to happen right after an ore has respawned. Anyone else experienced this/has thoughts on this, a bug perhaps? MxFox (talk) 17:17, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
