There are two ways to get to the mines:
- The entrance from the north trough a manhole (close to the Ardougne Estate agent), requiring 31 Thieving to enter. (Note: Thieving is not required when leaving the mine.)
- The entrance from the south trough the Ardougne Rat Pits minigame, requiring completion of the Ratcatchers quest. (Note that a requirement for Ratcatchers is Icthlarin's Little Helper, which requires you to kill a level 91 creature, the Possessed Priest.)
It is worth noting that there are zombies (level 24) in close proximity to the mine.
- The music for this area is Crystal Sword.
- To the south of the mine is the East Ardougne Rat Pits (for kittens).
