Volcanic ash is obtained from mining ash piles found around the Fossil Island Volcano. Doing so requires level 22 in Mining, and grants 10 experience per drop, regardless of the number of ash mined at once.

They can also be obtained as drops from wyverns in the Wyvern Cave.

Yield[edit | edit source]

The amount of ash obtained is scaled to the player's Mining level, starting with one ash at level 22 and increasing by one for every 15 levels above 22, to a maximum of six ash at 97 (boosts can be used). Mining gloves, Varrock armour of any tier, and the Mining cape do not affect the yield when mining volcanic ash.[1] At high mining levels, it is possible to obtain over 6500 ash per hour.
