Gold, worth (206 coins), is used to craft jewellery and train Smithing. Although Motherlode Mine offers an array of ore based on Mining level, players can still gain some gold from the pay-dirt. Players who want strictly gold should focus on mining it at the Crafting Guild Mine or Arzinian Mine once all requirements are met.

Arzinian Mine requires completion of the Between a Rock quest and the golden helmet. Also, wearing a Ring of charos (a), which requires some progression in Garden of Tranquillity, reduces the Dwarven Boatman's bank fee to 10% from 20%.

The Crafting Guild requires 40 Crafting to enter. For members, the added bonus is a bank chest after finishing the hard Falador Diary, which makes this mine the best choice overall, as opposed to banking at Falador East Bank like free players. Additionally, for players with a Crafting cape that have not done the hard Falador Diary, banking can be done with teleportation jewellery, such as an Amulet of glory or a Ring of dueling.

All in all, players can get 100-700 gold every hour predicated on levels and efficiency. Thus, the hourly profit margin ranges from 20,600 to 144,200.
