Dwarven Mine

This is a free area, however you will need to be a RuneScape member to have access to certain places in this location.


The Dwarven Mine is free area and a mining hot spot for those just beginning to train and those who're high level miners. It contains all non-quest ores minus Runite Ore (Silver Ore is found in the Resource dungeon near the Mining Guild and Runite Ore can be found in the Mining Guild's resource dungeon). On Free-to-Play worlds, it can be quite difficult to train as this is the most popular mining place for free users. Pay-to-Play users can find it relatively easy to obtain a full inventory of ores in a short period of time. There are no requirements to enter the Dwarven Mine besides getting there.

Getting There

There are multiple ways to get to the mine, a few simple ways are to teleport via Lodestone Network or teleport spell to Falador and run North-East to the mine site, or the entrance in North-East Falador immediately East of the Party Room. Another option is using a Games Necklace to teleport to the Gamer's Grotto. However, this is not recommended as it would be a waste of a use for you'd not even be in the Grotto for long.

There are two main entrances into the Dwarven Mine, both being rather close to each other.

Both locations on the world map.

Cart Conductor

Cart conductors are dwarves that're hired by the dwarven capital city Keldegrim to make sure the mine cart transit system is moving along smoothly. With the dwarves' steam-engine technology being very complex, this job can be somewhat difficult and tiresome.

The owner of "Normof's Pickaxe Shop", currently is located in the North-Westernmost area of the dwarvine mine. He sells all non-member pickaxes and is one of only two NPC's in RuneScape where players can purchase a Rune Pickaxe.
