- Training Mining typically involves training at a mine near a bank for the highest efficiency, and repeatedly mining rocks and banking/dropping the resultant ore.
Players are advised to start by completing Doric's Quest because doing so grants 1,300 Mining experience, enough to advance a player from level 1 Mining to level 10 Mining.
The quickest way to get from level 1 to level 15 is by mining copper rocks and tin rocks, which grant 17.5 experience per ore mined. The easiest place to do this is at the south-east Lumbridge Swamp mining site. Alternatively players may seek out the mine south-east of Varrock yet it should be noted that this location is often heavily populated.
