Volcanic sulphur is a mineral that can be mined within the Lovakengj sulphur mine on the northern side. Mining volcanic sulphur requires level 42 Mining to obtain and grants 25 Mining experience.

While mining in the sulphur mine, players should wear a form of face protection (face mask, gas mask or slayer helmet). Without protection, gas clouds within the mine will deal large amounts of damage to unprotected players. If the player wears any form of protection against them, the damage taken will be reduced by roughly 80% instead.

It is recommended to mine the volcanic sulphur deposits from the south or from the west to avoid taking excessive damage since the gas clouds cannot damage you when directly south or west of you.

Volcanic sulphur is used along with juniper charcoal, saltpetre, and a pot to create a dynamite pot, which is then added with a ball of wool to create dynamite, an item used to participate in the blast mine.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It takes approximately 861 Sulphur to get 30% Lovakengj favour.
  • To achieve 100% Lovakengj favour approximately 3,804 volcanic sulphur must be mined.
  • A glitch existed where players who died with 26 or more volcanic sulphur in their inventory lost all untradeable items they had on them, such as the graceful outfit or slayer helmet, as the sulphur was prioritised over everything else they had. This was fixed in an update on 16 March 2016 so that volcanic sulphur is always destroyed on death.
