Gold rock

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A gold rock is a rock containing gold ore. A Mining level of 40 or higher is required to mine gold ore from rocks. Mining grants 65 Mining experience for each ore mined. After being mined, a gold rock takes about a minute to respawn.

The Arzinian Mine and Crafting Guild are a couple of ideal places to mine gold.

Wearing either mining gloves or expert mining gloves while mining a gold rock grants a 33.33% chance for the rock to not deplete upon mining a gold ore, allowing you to mine an additional ore before depleting.

Pre roll drops[edit | edit source]

A gem table rolls before the main drop table.[1] There's a chance to receive nothing here so that players can receive no items from a rock even if they are guaranteed to receive an ore in the main drop table.[2] The table gets more likely to be rolled if the player has a glory amulet equipped: the probability grows from 1/256 to 1/86.[3]

Main drops[edit | edit source]

The probability for a player to receive a gold ore drop depends on the player's mining level.
